Once Monday and Tuesday roll around we have an interesting scenario. We do our weekly grocery shopping on Wednesday, so by Tuesday we may or may not have all the “stuff” for supper. This particular bean and rice yumminess was created from what we had on hand.
So I took the random veggies and beans in our fridge and threw them together. A super yummy something from nothing almost always begins with onions sauteing in olive oil. And then some garlic. And then whatever veggies we haven’t yet eaten. Then the beans. At this point I throw in random spices. Q and I love to collect a variety of spices, so I normally go by my mood or with what veggies are being sautéed. Do I feel like garlic lemon or spicy Thai??? Either way, loads of spicy-ness and then we throw in rice if we have it on hand. Wraps are my number one question from y’all so I HOPE this answers some questions!
You all are too kind with your comments! Your encouragement is awesome! The truth is I have broken through my FOUR MONTH plateau! The summer was difficult. I would gain 5 pounds, lose 5 pounds, stay the same, and yo yo a bit. All to say I maintained which is awesome, but highly annoying when you want to lose. Many of you called me “skinny” which surprised me since according to my height I am still technically “over weight.” I don’t have a magic number or pant size, BUT I do know what it feels like to feel healthy. I’m still carrying weight on my hips and my foopah is not as good as it can be. Thanks to everyone for the encouragement! And I am here to encourage you! If you want to change your feeling of fatigue and the strain on your joints from being overweight, then get busy. YOU have the power to change.
*Note I do NOT eat a whole avocado. This plate would be Q’s. He borrowed my portion so that it would look nice in a photo. He also has 4% body fat and has maintained this for 10 years…he’s allowed more avocado than me. He always will.
