Frijoles with Spinach

I had a Very bad. This always happens when I say I am going to entirely cut out certain foods. I guess restricting for so long has built up some resentment with my willpower and it completely fights against me at the first sign of anything resembling a diet. This is especially frustrating because I truly want to lose weight in a healthy way, but I can’t seem to get there.

I love this blog because I feel like I really put myself out there and am completely honest with you all. So, I’m being honest when I say that I ate a huge amount of junk food today, food I don’t even really enjoy that much. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t stop.

I don’t want to rehash it. I will start fresh tomorrow. So I leave you with a new recipe. This is actually a super simple family recipe my Grams used to make when my mom was a kid. Frijoles with spinach – basically you mix up all the ingredients and heat ’em up. But, you obviously should like beans and spinach to like this:)

dscn8230Frijoles con Spinach

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 cups pinto beans (cooked)

1 can spinach (you can use fresh, but this is what Grams used)

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can whole tomatoes

1/2 chopped onion

2 Tbsp minced garlic

salt, pepper, garlic, cayenne

1. Heat oil in pan, add onions and saute. Add minced garlic.

2. Drain spinach well and add to pan with onions

3. Drain both cans of tomatoes and add to pan.

4. Season to taste. Most of these ingredients are very plain on their own and do require a good amount of salt & pepper – add other spices to your liking :)

5. Heat thoroughly and enjoy!!!dscn8239

    Hey, we all have our bad days. I’ve thought about posting more about my eats on my blog to keep myself accountable, but then I’m often worried about what could look like some serious messed up eating. But that’s because it’s all about balance, and we can’t be perfect. Some people are stress eaters, have lack of control for whatever reason, etc. (like me!), but you shouldn’t beat yourself up over it. From what I’ve seen on your blog (I’m a lurker), you live a pretty balanced life. You’re fine!

    I’ll do a little Garmin lesson for you next week then! I’m taking a couple or three days off running to rest after Sunday’s Half Marathon.

    Good luck at the OC Half this weekend! I know lots of people who are running over there! Have fun!

After researching throughout the world-wide-web and getting strategies which are not pleasant, I assumed my entire life was over. Living without the approaches to the problems you have resolved through your report is a critical case, as well as the kind which might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not noticed your blog post. That ability and kindness in taking care of every aspect was very helpful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. It’s possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this expert and sensible guide. I won’t be reluctant to recommend your blog to anybody who needs and wants assistance on this area.
