Fresh & Tangy [Bean Salad] revisited

Here’s the Bean salad again. I missed eating it, so I went right out and bought the ingredients for just a few dollars.

It generates about 5 meals. Cheap, Easy, Fresh, Filling, Tasty & Tangy. Here goes…

I chopped ::

A Cucumber

A Tomato

Celery

An Apple (squeeze lemon over the apples)

A Red Pepper

Green Onion

White Onion

Garlic

and Mixed them together with::


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A can of White Beans

salt

Pepper

Italian Seasoning

EVOO

Strawberry red wine vinegar

Plain Greek Yogurt

* Use whatever Bean you want. I used less celery than the recipe called for b/c I’m not a fan but actually when you chop it tiny it isn’t noticeable. I’ll add more next time. The Apple makes it all worth eating by the way. Try it.

*  YouTube’s TheThirdShift is a great channel and where I got this from.

The truth is making oatmeal takes 7 minutes.

Why not make your own?

Im not going to make a series of oatmeal posts so here’s some that I did last week…..

Some had bananas and Pumpkin spice, Nutmeg & Cinnamon and others had Blueberries, Honey and Cinnamon.

Whatever combo you like, use it.

Sweeten with honey or stevia and add a splash of almond or soy milk.

* Bananas used were Hard & Green, those are the best. Stay away from those soft Bananas.

Funny how your body starts craving very specific things.

Here’s what mine asked for today after a long day of shoveling snow…..

 


  • Sautee onion
  • Fry a slice of bacon if u want
  • Whip up an egg and some egg whites and cook it on both sides in your pan
  • Once u have a round disk fill one side with the onions red peppers and spinach
  • Grate some fresh parmesan
  • Fold

Done.
