Protein Packed Lentil Cups for 1

This simple, yet elegant lunch packs a powerful protein punch, weighing in right at 10 grams which is about a 1/3 of my daily protein goal. It's also all about the fiber; guess how many grams - just guess - you're totally right: A LOT (about 50% of the suggested daily intake). The whole meal only takes about 30 minutes to prepare (3 minutes if you've got precooked or leftover lentils) and is under 300 calories; it's also really really delicious which pretty much makes it perfect.

Use your favorite store-bought hummus or try one of these hummus recipes:

Also, if you're not feeling lettuce cups, or don't have butter lettuce, serve this all on top of a bed of mixed greens and have a bomb-ass salad.

1/2 c cooked lentils
juice from a slice of lime
1/4 of an avocado
2 tbsp hummus
butter lettuce
  1. assemble and eat!
