Weekend Food :)

Sunday Breakfast! Banana Pancakes :)

New Recipe! Instead of flour use a tbsp of cornstarch. Look at thick they turned out compared to the reg ones.

Parker sitting on the table at breakfast with his teething cookie :)

Here is a pic of the meal from yesterday. SOOO good! The butternut squash was both mine and rogers side that night. Side at lunch the next day and then made 10 servings for Parker! makes our servings under 50cent a piece!

Black Bean Burgers!!!
Add half an onion and 3 cloves of garlic. Blend in food processor. Then add can of rinsed black beans, handful of chopped cilantro and one egg(i just used egg white) pulse in blender until blended well. Put in bowl and add 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, salt and pepper to taste. Form into two patties and cook on med high heat. I liked mine really crispy on the outside! The crunch topped it off! and I toasted our bread. Mine was an open face sandwich with ketchup on bottom and avocado and tomato on top with a tad salt and pepper. AMAZING Hubby loved them too! Next time I might try a little lime, salsa, avocado, tomato and onion on top! :)

Crib bedding for sale!

Groceries for the week and a new dish for dinner :)

ALL this is organic and GMO free!! Im SOOO happy! Even the corn chips are GMO free. :) It cost us $65.00 to feed two and half people for a week and some personal care items. All natural soap and apple cider vinegar!

Something new again for dinner. Kale, onion, chicken, tomato with lemon pepper seasoning. Will serve with pasta :) cant wait to pop it in the oven! Butternut squash will be the side dish.

Some tips when grocery shopping. Get milk free of hormones. Free range organic/vegetarian fed chicken eggs. Organic produce. FOR SURE bananas and apples (contain lots of pesticides) Aim for beans, seeds(like hemp or chia), and veggies(fresh or frozen ONLY) for protein vs meat. You don't have to cut it all the way out if you don't want to.. but i limit it to about twice a week. the only meat i will purchase is 100% grass fed beef(very rare i get red meat) chicken, wild caught shrimp. I gets LOTS of fruit and veggies to snack on vs chips, cookies, crackers(or any other processed foods) and that's about it... some things i cook with on a daily basis are onion, garlic, tomato, green veggies, beans and seeds. pretty simple and with lots of different spices you make TONS of variations of super yummy healthy foods!

New Recipe

 I was in the mood for something new and it turned out great! Packed full of fiber and protein. :)
1/2 onion
salt, pepper, fiesta lime seasoning
1/2 cup kidney beans
handful of arugula
tomatoes (optional)
sour cream (optional)

Saute onion in olive oil with salt, pepper, fiesta lime seasoning and lime juice. Drain, rinse and add kidney beans once onion is cooked.(just to warm through) Add splash of water to unstick all the yummy flavor on the bottom of the pan (you scrape spatula until bottom of pan is clean.. AKA braising lol) Add the arugula on top of mixture and cover until wilted down. stir and throw it on a wrap! Super simple and SOO good!

My favoriteeeee.. Banana Pancakes!
1 banana
2 eggs
1 tbs of whole wheat flour
coconut oil or olive oil
Sugar free syrup sweetened with splenda

Using a hand mixer, mix the banana until somewhat lump free. Blend in cinnamon and flour. Last blend eggs. Let sit for a few minutes. Coat pan with either coconut oil or olive oil. (coconut oil helps the body absorb nutrients sooo I go with coconut)
