Happy Tuesday All! I skipped life yesterday because it was a holiday and I was home chilling with my kids. Actually, I got about 5 hours into my taxes and then said “screw it” for the day and decided to come back to them next weekend. That’s pretty bad since I’m an accountant and a business owner as well, but sometimes you just need to put the adulting to the side and enjoy life? Am I right?
As promised for those of you who have found me via Facebook or Instagram, I’m going to give you a little heartwarming today. A couple of CRAZY-SIMPLE recipes that will warm you to your bones, and leave you nourished. The great thing about the Bean Soup I’m including is that you can adjust it to your own taste, but for my readers who, like me, are in recovery from ED, you’ll find this easy to eat in small quantities. Legumes are soo good for getting in some high-quality nutrients. Just be warned, because of legumes function in digestion, it does tend to cause some tummy rumbles (if you know what I mean)! If you aren’t married, maybe save it for a night when you’re not sharing a bed with a significant other.
The other recipe I’m going to share is for a super-simple breakfast pizza. I’m all about using up leftovers and not wasting food, so this recipe came about because I just really wanted something a little heavier than oatmeal or avocado toast over the weekend, and I also had some random breakfast fillings left to use-up. Mission accomplished…breakfast pizza to the rescue!
-Jar of Mixed Beans (I used Randall’s mixed beans)
-Can of Brown Lentils (Simple Truth now has Lentils in a can!!)
-Yellow sweet onion, 1 medium, chopped
-3/4 lb Carrots, chopped into half moons
-3/4 lb Celery with leaves, chopped

-Dried Italian Herbs, 1 tsp

I used my OnePot for this recipe and would HIGHLY suggest you invest in one if you don’t already have one. I use it for everything!
