Curried Lentil Bowl by @andrealoretdemola

These lentils get additional flavor from curry powder, garlic and shallots. It's topped off with a bit of greens, a creamy poached egg and a bit of spicy chili oil for some kick! Make sure to batch cook your lentils so you can add them to meals throughout the week.

Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Chicken by @spoonabilities

We love a good spin on a classic pizza! This one takes the pepperoni and cheese and adds it to the inside of a juicy chicken breast. Top it with a bit of pizza sauce, bake it in the oven and Friday's dinner is on the table.
