The Return of an Old Favorite

by Meghann on May 13, 2010

Here’s a great lunch combination I haven’t had in a while.


Sweet Potato & Black Beans! Yum!


Sweet Potatoes & Black Beans are one of those combos I never would have thought of before I started reading blogs, but it is seriously one of my favorites! I spruced the combination up today by adding some left over harvest blend from last night, spinach, and a little salsa.


I ate some raw green beans on the side for a cool and refreshing crunch.


I love having the ability to go home and make hot meals like this one. There is something so warm and comforting about having a hot meal for lunch. It warms up my insides and makes me believe the rest of the day is going to be ok. 🙂


Nuts are a great comfort food too.


Specifically mixed nuts with chocolate goldfish. 😉

I have a HOT date with HOT yoga tonight! I can’t wait to get my sweat on. 🙂

I’m having sweet potato’s for lunch too. They are my favorite food, hands down (well except for anything having to do with dessert)!

Can you ever go wrong with a sweet potato? Or chocolate for that matter 🙂

Sweet potatoes and black beans are awesome together. I usually eat those in a wrap the night before I race and it hasn’t failed me yet! 🙂

I wish I could go home for my lunches! Sometimes, I get tired of having cold sandwiches and salads day in and day out. Have a great time at yoga!

SP + black beans are a timeless combo!

I had a hot yoga date tonight too. Hope your’s was wonderful.
I love that your lunch was just as random and tasty as most of my meals…people I work/live with are always surprised that the combinations taste as good as they do, but my personal philosophy is that the more veggies, grains and other accoutrements you put in a bowl, the better!

I love making those favorite “forgotten” meals. Never had the sweet potato w/ black beans before but sounds yummy!

oh… I’ve forgotten about that yummy combo! Good thing I just got a sweet potato 🙂
