Triple Lentil Recovery Soup & Booty Camp Fitness Giveaway!

The lovely ladies from Booty Camp Fitness recently sent me their new Ultimate Home Edition 11-disc workout plan to try out. I am a big fan of their first workout DVDs, so I was really excited to try their newest series. Sammie Kennedy- the Creator of Booty Camp Fitness- and the other amazing boot-camp instructors have a very friendly and laid-back style, making even the biggest exercise newbie feel confident. When you think of a “boot camp” workout, you often think of instructors screaming at you and lots of intensity. This isn’t Booty Camp’s style at all. It’s all about having fun, empowering women, and making it seem like you are working out with a few of your girlfriends (who just happen to know some killer workout exercises).

The 11-disc series contain the following workouts:

The DVDs come with a workout calendar, jump rope, measuring tape, lifestyle guide, and e-cookbook as well. I’ve been testing out the workouts since the end of December and I’m starting the 2-month plan this week.

The workout that I love to hate? 20-minute Bounce ‘n Burn (jump rope)

Burn isn’t even the word! My legs feel like bricks when I do this workout. The last time I jumped rope was probably in grade school so it wasn’t pretty the first time I did it. After a couple painful sessions, I’ve relearned how to jump rope without whipping myself like silly (tip: wear long pants!). It will probably take me at least a few more sessions until I’m not gasping for air..it’s an intense 20 minutes, even with alternating jumping rope with strength exercises.

So far the videos are going well and I’m loving the variety of the 11 workouts. My muscles hate me though, so I’ve been making sure to stretch a lot, take my rest days when needed, and get lots of protein following tough workouts.

Like with this Triple lentil Recovery Soup!

Triple Lentil Recovery Soup

Vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free

By

Packed with over 25 grams of protein per serving, this soup will aid with post-workout recovery and get you back in the game in no time.

Yield
4 servings
Prep time
Cook time

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped (~2 cups)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 heaping cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 5-6.5 cups vegetable broth, depending on how thin/thick you want it
  • 1/2 cup dry red lentils
  • 1/2 cup dry black beluga lentils
  • 1 cup dry green/brown lentils
  • Kosher salt & pepper, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp salt)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet or pot, add the oil and sauté the onion and garlic over low-medium heat for about 6-7 minutes.
  2. Add in the celery and sauté another few minutes. Stir in the spices and cook for another couple minutes on low.
  3. Now, rinse and drain the lentils and stir into skillet/pot. Add the broth and stir well. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, a simmer until thick and lentils are cooked, about 45 minutes to an hour. Watch closely and stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the pot. Add more broth to thin out if desired. You can also use an immersion blender to blend some of the soup a bit. I did this, but left it mostly chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare yourself for a high protein and flavourful soup, great for all those sore muscles that we often have at the beginning of the year. A little bit goes a long way with this soup! It’s extremely filling and lovely with a toasted bun or piece of bread.

IMG_6074

It’s a bit of an “ugly duckling” soup, but I think we learned not to judge food by its appearance long ago. ;)

I made this last night for dinner as it was very rainy out and I wanted something warm and ‘stew-like’. I subbed the celery for kale as I had none, and I omitted the black lentils for more red as I also had none. The recipe tasted amazing! My dad even put some on his chicken haha. :)

for the first time ever, i have no goals to achieve other than feeling happy. i came to realize there’s nothing you can achieve from outside world that guarantees you that feeling, only thing you can do is work on yourself and learn to be content with nothing but your own self. no material achievements, neither fitness or comparisons, money, etc can give you that. of course, they can always add up and help but first feeling the need of not needing anything but feeling love and be loved.

That lentil soup has impressive stats – that is a LOT of protein!

My goal for 2012 is to complete my Masters in Nutrition degree. I have been working on it for 2 years now, along with being a mom to a very active 9 year old, being a wife, and all that taking care of a house and a family entails. By doing it on my pace I have been able to learn a lot more, not only about nutrition, but about myself and how much I can accomplish if I truly motivate myself.
This degree will be a huge accomplishment for me and I can’t wait to get it!

Great giveaway! More than anything else, I want to stop using food as my God… to bring me comfort, joy, happiness, to be my friend, my companion, etc. I want to allow God, myself and others to nourish my soul and use food to nourish my body. I want to stop the bingeing that I have been doing for years. I am so scared and I have no idea how to stop. I feel like it is an addiction and that makes me feel hopeless. I just want to be healthy….but the “high” I get from bingeing feels so good and impossible to stop.

In 2012 my life is going to change. I would like to go to grad school to get my PhD. I have already applied and I’m waiting to hear back!! If I get in, I could be moving to another part of the country!!

Another goal is to concentrate on getting a regular schedule as opposed to the crazy college-version of life that I just finished before the holidays. Normal sleep, eat and workout schedule :)

I’m just getting into working out and I’d love love love a box set like this to jump start my plans! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Oh, that lentil soup looks wonderful! Lentils are my favorite.

Towards the end of 2011 I started working out more regularly (yoga, spinning, swimming), but I’m still not consistent enough. So my goal for 2012 is to exercise at least five days a week, and gradually incorporate more running.
