I’ve had beans on the brain all day. So as soon as I got home from work today I knew I needed to get my bean on.
I wanted to make a Three Bean Salad, so I threw together a simple dressing.
This consisted of about 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar, 1 1/2 tablespoons EVOO, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, the juice from one lemon, and sea salt and course pepper to taste.
To the dressing I added 2 cans Great Northern beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can red kidney beans (all rinsed of course), one cup chopped green onion, and one chopped orange bell pepper.
Then I stuck it in the fridge and let it marinate while I went to the gym.
At said gym I did 25 minutes on the elliptical while waiting for yoga at 6:45. It’s been a long time since I’ve ellipticized and I worked up a decent sweat. Yoga was amazing! I’ve been in dire need of a good stretch and shavasana.
I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t fantasizing about my beans all during class though. As soon as I walked through the door I threw together my dinner. I added some quick-cooking couscous to my Three Bean Salad and I had a complete meal in under 10 minutes!
So good! I scarfed this down in record time! Can’t you see why?
After this I was craving something sweet, so I bit the bullet and tried something that everyone else and their mother has already had.
Well, better late than never right? At first, I was like Holy Sh!t this is good but I wasn’t sure it was life changing. Then I thought about it. The absolute fabulousity of this miracle banana concoction means I’m going to have to buy and freeze double the already obscene amount of bananas I’m currently buying. I need to find a composter and donate all my peels!
Seriously though, it was really good and if you’re even more behind the times than I am and haven’t tried it yet, you need to do some immediately!
At present I am watching the Teen Choice Awards and I’m left with a few questions.
1. Did Britney shave her head again?
2. How cute is Ms. J?!?
3. Is it Kosher for underage girls to even dance next to a pole?
4. Am I the only one with a girl crush on Alexis Bledel?
I do not have the answers, but I do have a puzzled look on my face right now. Any input would be appreciated
Next on the agenda is my Tone Up Challenge routine, a shower and hopefully a good night’s sleep.
