Healthy, Budget-Friendly Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

You know what they say, “Fail to plan – then plan to fail.” For that reason, Sundays are for meal planning at my house.

I love a good hearty stew I can cook up on the weekend and enjoy all week or throw in the freezer for a busy weeknight meal. This vegetarian Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew is packed with flavor, fiber, protein and heart-warming goodness. It's a great alternative to the usual heavy comfort foods we are all craving during these colder months.

Serve this with a beautiful mixed greens salad, and you've got a well-balanced lunch or dinner, that's healthy and budget friendly.
