Bean Bowl

July 21, 2010

Hello, hello!

Well, I think we’re finally getting caught up on everything.  It always takes me a few days to get back to normal after a trip, but we’re definitely getting there!  Many of you suggested planning another trip to overcome post-vacation depression, but the truth is, the thought of more travel makes me exhausted!  We’ve had a pretty travel-intense summer, so I’m content to just relax at home…for now, anyway! 😉

This morning, we hit the gym early.  Ryan went to an 8:00 yoga class, and I did the elliptical for an hour, followed by a long sweat in the sauna.  I love that place, even in the middle of summer! Bring on the sweat.

After our workout, we headed home to do some work.  I took care of some online classroom business for a few hours, and then headed out with the dogs for a long walk on the lower trail. 

It was definitely one of those mornings where time slipped away from me…by the time I got home, it was 1:30, and I was starving!

Enter: the black bean bowl:

Leftover brown rice, black beans, salsa, and avocado.  Easy, fast, delicious.

Off to catch up on mail and what not.  I think we might venture over to State College tonight to see Please Give, which I’m excited about seeing.

Happy Wednesday!

    That’s one of my favorite single meals — I made it so often when I was on my own but not so much anymore. Time to whip one up!

      Isn’t it funny how there are certain things you stop eating once you get married? Strange.

    I’ve never been in a sauna. I think there’s one in my gym but it sort of worries me. How long do you stay in it?
    Also, beans and rice is the best combination on Earth!

      I usually stay in for 10-15 minutes…but I love sweating and being hot! Ryan won’t do it!

        It could be a family thing. I love heat, but I can’t tolerate a sauna at all.

    It’s really hard to go wrong with black beans and salsa in my opinion!

  13. July 22, 2010 12:24 am

    Love that bean bowl! Perfect for a fast but satisfying meal!

    that looks so good…what kind of seasonding do you add to the rice and beans

    • July 22, 2010 1:17 pm

      I didn’t add any, but you could certainly add some cumin to it– I think that would be really tasty!

    When I go into saunas I get anxiety that I won’t be ale to get out which really puts a damper on things.

    Did you see ‘Please Give’ … how was it?

  22. July 22, 2010 4:21 pm

    This is exactly what I ate for dinner last night. The only difference was that I used peach salsa instead of tomato. So delicious!!

  23. July 22, 2010 5:28 pm

    That is one of my favorite meals! Brown rice, salsa, black beans and avocado. I usually have some chicken in mine though! 🙂
