Beans Beans the Wonderful Fruit ...

Today I tried a few new products that I bought yesterday when I was grocery shopping! For lunch I had an "Amy's Organic Beans and Rice Burrito":


It was really good! I found it quite satisfying, and it kept me full until dinner, which is REALLY rare. I usually get hungry by about 3:30 or 4:00 everyday, but not today!

I also had a fruit cup:


And some of these crackers which I enjoyed with 2 pieces of cheese:




The crackers were really hard/ crunchy ... but in a good way. They are completely wheat, dairy gluten, and trans fat free. They are also vegan and kosher. Check out the ingredient list:

  • Organic Brown Rice
  • Organic Quinoa
  • Organic Flax Seeds
  • Organic Brown Sesame Seeds
  • Water
  • Organic Black Pepper
  • Organic Wheat Free Tamari
  • Organic Soybeans
  • Salt/ Sea Salt
I will definitely be buying these again!

Dinner tonight was "Chicken Chili" ... essentially cut up chicken, chicken broth, white kidney beans, chili peppers, and spices simmered for a long time. I got the recipe from a magazine.



It was good - very different than anything I have had before. This was my first time having white kidney beans (that I can think of) and they are better than the red ones for sure!

Later on in the evening I wanted a snack so I made a GREEN MONSTER :-)


Pretty healthy snack if I do say so myself.

Now it is time to go read trashy celebrity magazines ... or watch the office ... Hmmm, how does a girl decide? How do you unwind at the end of the day?

I usually just chill out in my room, watch TV or a DVD.

Thanks for the review of the burrito -I always see them in the store and can never decide if I should bring one home with me or not :)

I usually read blogs :), watch the Office and read books :)
