Mmm Lentil Balls with Raita sound amazing.

Sadly I didn't run the Broadstreet because I was out a month ago due to a knee injury and didn't have enough time to train. But I did get up and cheer the runners on, which was an inspiring sight!

I eat lentils almost every week. They are a good source of Iron and Protein.

Yes, looks great-- can't wait to try it!

Sorry to hear-- knee injuries are the worst! I was getting over one just as I was starting marathon training; it had me questioning if I could do it. Fortunately, it got stronger as I trained.

That's great to cheer other runners! I can't tell you how much of a lift it was to me running the marathon whenever a group of spectators would cheer and encourage! Great stuff! When I finish a race, I like to stay beside the finish line and cheer in all of the rest of the runners!

Great nutrition! Protein, fiber, carbs, vitamins, hardly any fat! What's not to like?!
