Easy Lentils with Spinach

I started the Daniel Fast with my church on Monday.  For 40 days I have committed myself to eating a Daniel compliant diet and to prayer. Although it's only been two days, blessings have already happened.

For my first meal, I cooked some lentils and they were delicious. I served them with brown rice and this morning ate them with grits. I had no idea just how much lentils yield when cooked.  I have enough to last the week! I boiled them until slightly tender then put them in the slow cooker.  I realised that it was unnecessary to do as the slow cooker would soften them anyway.
