Pomegranate Double Time, Indian Channa Dal

Chana Dal!
Stoked on my second time using Dal, this time with intention of following the recipe I originally got it for! I sort of followed it, but mostly went with a bit of this and a bit of that as usual. It was a bit spicy, and all the wonderful spice aromas filled my kitchen. It had plenty of crunchiness in it between the sauteed vegetables and toasted almonds, and went perfectly in a wrap. Next time i'm going to make mass amounts and then eat leftover wraps for days...mmmm
-Dal (Split Pigeon Peas or Lentils) with a tiny bit of Agave Nectar 
-Spice Combo: Garam Masala, Curry Powder, Turmeric, Cardamom Powder, Mustard Seed, Togarashi (for chili flakes), Pepper and Sea Salt
-Garlic, Ginger, Onion, and Fennel Sauté
-Toasted Almonds, Green Onion
-Steamed Broccoli and a Tortilla
The Most Epic Pomegranate Beet Salad
This salad was mega. The picture does not come close to doing it justice. Combine your standard beet salad complete with Basil, Avocado, Green Onion, and Rice Wine Vinegar, and then mix it all together with an epic Pomegranate Ginger Chicken Salad, complete with Dried Cranberries and Star Anise.  All due to having the right leftovers! Each bite had a different delicious highlight. So bomb.
-Spring Mix, Tomato, Green Onion Leftovers
-Ginger Chicken Breast Leftovers
-Pomegranite Dressing (Pomegranite Juice, Olive Oil, Basil, Star Anise, Ginger Juice, Rice Wine Vinegar)
-Dried Cranberries and Beets
-Sea Salt n' Peppa
Pomegranate Overnight Oats
Definitely stoked my mom got a small container of Pomegranate juice from the Farmer's Market! So far I had some straight, used some for Pomegranate Kombucha, and now some for Overnight Oats.  It made for a delicious purple hued bowl of oats and goodies.
-60g oats, 150g soymilk, 5g Pomegranate Juice
-6 Brazil Nuts, chopped, Dried Cranberries
-Blueberries and Strawberries
New Containers!
And I made my overnight oats using my new containers from CSN stores. These glass jars by Bodum are light, hold a ton of any grain, bean, or dried food, look nice, and the tops come off and on like your lifting up a cloud, except they are still totally air tight. Win-Win.
