Mexican Meatless Monday – Part II

Welcome to the second Mexican Meatless Monday!

You guys know I love easy recipes and this is another one of my classics :) Tonight for dinner I made Easy Black Bean Soup (see I even added easy in the name).

The soup only requires four ingredients plus chips and cheese for topping. Ingredients: can of refried black beans, vegetable broth, jar of salsa and frozen veggies. IMG_4016

Directions: Place entire can of beans, jar of salsa, half a bag of frozen veggies and add vegetable broth to desired thickness. Heat thoroughly. Top with shredded cheese and crushed chips.IMG_4024

This time I ate the chips on the side for dipping.IMG_4023

I’m feeling a lot better than I was this morning :) Sorry if my recap seemed like a downer in any way. I completely realize that running a marathon is an amazing accomplishment and I am proud of myself.

But…you guys also know I keep it real here and I would be lying if I didn’t admit feeling a twinge of disappointment when I saw my time on the board at the finish line.

Thanks for the well wishes and please believe that I am proud of myself  – I always say that I am not built for running. The fact that I run at all, let alone run 26.2 miles is a miracle…

I weigh more than I’d like to – and more than my knees would like to carry. I ran a marathon yesterday. I wore spandex in public with nothing to hide my ass. I am one bad bitch. I do give myself some credit 😉

I am also very happy to share my Disney loot with my little bro, Matt. He is absolutely obsessed with all things Disney so I made sure to bring home anything that wasn’t bolted down from the hotel room.IMG_4015

And I got this collector’s pin that I’m going to give to him.IMG_4013

My eats today have been very random. First I wasn’t hungry at all, then I was super hungry out of no where, then I was emotionally snacky… just one of those days. I didn’t document most of it, but this was one of the highlights:IMG_4018

Plus extra PB for dipping, because I am a glutton. Note to self: Either go to confession or stop being a glutton unless you want to go to hell. IMG_4019

I expect that tomorrow my body will be back to normal (for me) and I will be able to get back on the Intuitive Eating wagon :)

Have a good one :)

    Yum, I make a similar soup, but modify it to my picky-ish husband’s liking. The refried beans make a great base for the soup. Peanut butter and pretzels = a match made in heaven.
    I’m glad you’re feeling better!

    I love how simple your soup is. I am definitely going to have to give it a try. And I just tried those TJ’s chips today and they are so yummy!
