An Awesome Bean Burger

Oh my lanta. I just had the best lunch! I love quesadillas, so when I saw that Heather made a black bean version of one, I had to try it!

 But before I unveil the quesadilla, let me tell you about my morning.

I dragged myself to the gym after breakfast. It was hard this morning, but once I was there I was happy I went. I ran 2 miles in 20 minutes (this 20 minutes included the 5 minute walking warm up I did at the beginning, so when I got running it was really fast, up to 8.5 mph).

Then I stretched out and drove home.

I made myself this.

  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 
  • 3/4 scoop vanilla whey powder
  • two ice cubes 

It was awesome. 

A couple hours later, lunch time! 

Heather used this recipe. I changed it up a bit. 

  • I cut all of the ingredients in half
  • Used panco bread crumbs
  • Used a fresh jalepeno
Great texture, and bold flavor. I'm happy I have three more in my fridge ;)

I've been sipping these all morning long. 

Chocolate chai tea with a little almond milk and stevia. D's cousin introduced me to these while she was staying with us. I can't get enough of them! I carry my travel mug around with me everywhere now. 

It's time to write an editorial, then I'm off to Bikram with a friend. YAY for hot yoga :)
