So back to the topic here. Yesterday I was going through the fridge trying to decide on what to make for lunch. I had half a can of black beans in the fridge, a red pepper and cilantro left over from another meal. I got creative....
I thawed some corn, roasted the red pepper, mixed all the ingredients and added some lime juice.... YUM!! I took the picture when I added it to my SparkPeople recipes so for prettiness I added some pita chips to it. I actually ate it with a corn tortilla and a little Avocado Ranch made with Greek Yogurt. It was delicious!!!!
Here's the recipe:
3/4 cup canned black beans3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 Tbsp. Cilantro, chopped
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and toss to coat with juice and mix well.
I added this in the recipe calculator (one of the many useful tools spark has!!) and figured it at 1/2 cup serving for only 151 calories. Amazing!! I felt it was a healthy and satisfying lunch. Plan on having it again today. :)
Now, keeping that in mind... I still spoiled my diet. Oh yeah, pretty bad. LOL Our Mother Daughter Banquet at church is tonight and I was asked to bring cupcakes. I was thrilled to do so but it's not good on the tummy. I made chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate buttercream frosting and put adorable pink flowers I made on them.
Show them off?? Of course I will :)
And yes, I ate a ton of frosting alone!!!!
Well off to the kiddos..... Happy Friday to you all!!!!
