Lentil Pasta for a Meatless Main Course

Appetizer: 
Crunchy peanut butter and celery: (A student asked me to try this pair, and I like the crunchy-and-smooth combination on my palate. However, my favorite is still apple and peanut butter. I used to love banana and peanut butter/peanut or groundnuts--a Nigerian favorite snack.)

Benefits of celery: High in anti-oxidants, potent healing power as the first drink of the day, a cure for insomnia, and other superfood-worthy benefits. Peanuts are high in protein.

Meatless Main Course: Start with pungent red onions, which used to make me cry when I was a novice cook. I love to cut them into concentric rings. In a separate pot, pour lentil pasta into boiling water (far right) with butter or olive oil. I prefer olive oil for everything, even for frying plantains.

Dessert: 
Succulent, sun-riped, and glistening pineapple chunks are amazing for reducing inflammation of joints.
