Easy Crockpot Yellow Split Pea Dal

Easy Crockpot Yellow Split Pea Dal

With my MPH classes now in full swing, it is more important than ever for me to schedule time on the weekends to prepare lunches for the busy week ahead. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I view food as the fuel that keeps my body going all the way from work in the morning to graduate classes at night. In my situation, it would be easy just to choose processed convenience foods instead of spending time in the kitchen, but I would rather choose a smarter, more “efficient” fuel for my body. By preparing balanced, plant-based lunches rich in produce, whole grains, and lean protein, I provide myself with the nutrition that I need to stay focused, engaged, and on top of my game.

For the important task of preparing my meals for the week ahead, I frequently turn to my crockpot, an appliance whose hands-off approach to bulk cooking allows me to spend less of my coveted weekend hours in the kitchen and more time de-stressing with friends or hitting the books.

Further Food Commentary:

If you are looking for something healthy and convenient, look no further than this Crockpot Yellow Split Pea Dal. Quick meal prep doesn't have to mean short on nutrients, as this soup packs a powerful punch. For starters, this dish contains nearly half of the daily dietary intake in fiber. A diet high in fiber aids in prevention of heart disease, strokes, diverticulitis and IBS. It is also crucial in controlling blood glucose, making it a staple in diabetic diets. Along with the above benefits, split peas provide ample protein and magnesium which helps to build strong bones. Turmeric is a common anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant.
