One of the reasons I started reading all the healthy food blogs out there is because of the great ideas everyone has on how to interestingly and tastily pair food up together. One of my favorite blog discoveries over the past year has been the combination of Sweet Potato and Black Beans. I don’t know how I lived without the melding of these flavors in the past! For anyone who hasn’t tried the combination yet I HIGHLY recommend you hop on this bandwagon fast because it’s definitely worth the ride.
What’s your favorite thing you have discovered in your blog readings?
When I was making my dinner last night and knew I would have some left over black beans I instantly knew I wanted to pair it with sweet potato.
For a quick and easy lunch I simply micowaved the small sweet potato for five minutes and topped it with the left over black beans and banana peppers.
On the side I had some left over squash with hummus and the last 10 or so of my organic wheat crackers.
I actually had not had this combination in a while and will not be making that mistake again. J
When my stomach started to talk to me around 10 this morning I snacked on this peach.
This peach was ok, it was sort of half ripe/ half not quite ripe. It could have used another day or so on the counter.
After lunch I snuck a small pumpkin oatmeal cookie into my mouth.
You’re probably getting tired of looking at these so let me assure you there are only 4 left. Which means I will have ate the entire batch of cookies on my own. :-/ Good thing I halved the recipe, I don’t know what I would do if I still had a couple dozen cookies left. I would be a very happy (couple of pounds heavier) girl.
After not running yesterday and again this morning I am itching to run. Luckily Caitlin has agreed to meet me downtown for a gorgeous run around Lake Eola. This will be the first time I will be running in the afternoon instead of the morning time since April (wow! I guess thatt’s a lot of getting up at 5:30am) I’m interested to see how my body reacts to the change in time.
Wish me luck!
