Change of Scenery

I had planned on going to yoga class this morning but as soon as I saw the nasty weather outside, I decided that in order to get me out to my car, someone would have to drag me! It was crazy windy and rainy! It has mellowed out a little bit but it is still gray and gloomy. So, instead of going to yoga this morning, I lounged around in my comfy clothes, drinking coffee, eating food, reading blogs and listening to Fat Freddy's Drop. Not a bad morning! I finally got productive and took care of some things, but now here I am, back in the blog world.

Breakfast this morning:

Cereal with strawberries and coconut milk. Delicious.


Creamy black bean soup with sweet potato biscuits!

I adapted the soup recipe from A Healthy Passion

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 veggie cube
  • 1/4 cup salsa (I used Mrs. Renfro's Mango Habanero!)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Handful of cilantro
Blend all the ingredients in a blender, then transfer to a sauce pan and heat on the stove until hot. Top the soup with more salsa and cilantro! I ate almost the whole batch! And two biscuits! :-) 

So, I am considering changing the look of my blog. I've noticed that most blogs out there have a simple, clean layout and I kinda like that. I'm wondering if all the swirls I got going on in the background is distracting. What do you think?!? Do you like it? Or do you prefer a more simple look? I'm going to play around with the idea of a new look for a while and see how I feel :-)

 Have a lovely day and I'll see you later. I've got to get my booty in gear and work out now. I've been sitting around for too long today!
