Meatless Monday-Electric Lentils

Known for being a powerhouse packed with folate and protein and low in calories. These Legumes have earned their name on the charts for being the third highest level of protein because the protein in them makes up 26% of the calories that people consume.

As a staple food, I personally enjoy them alone or paired with other foods because my Iron levels drop if I don’t keep enough Iron stored in my body. Not only are Lentils delicious but they are great for the digestive, nervous and immune system.

It is said that they derive from the Middle East over 13,000 years ago. From Syria to Turkey are different countries that cultivated this legumes. However, at that point in time, the Middle East was still part of the continent of Africa but formerly known as Aethiopia (Ethiopia).

MERON & The Road to Inner Peace

Meron and the Holy Reign of Inner Peace

Her mind is like a soldier yet her beauty is very pure with grace and significance. Meron, as strong as Mount Simien yet beautiful and evergreen as the Ethiopian flora. Hieratic  to her inner peace, she seeks holiness from the plateau of the indigenous that surrounds her flute of divine energy.

The Mekdes is where she sends and receives the gifts of god. Tranquility is an honor of all the lands of freedom but peace comes easy as the light within spreads like the sun’s rays against the Earth’s crust.

Enlightenment wreaks from her pores and the holy oils infused in her genes make up part of her creative being.
