Beans, Beans, Good For Your Heart

Happy happy Humpday! AND it’s half way over already! and LOST comes on tonight! Today is a good day.

Operation Tea is still going well. I had some of this at work this morning:

tea1I forgot how much I like this tea! It tastes very similar to a an Earl Grey, but a bit different. A good way to start my morning at work  :)

Lunch today was full o’ beans and it was tasty. I had some refried beans topped with a Black Bean burger and a little avocado

burger2Bean overload? Nah. I love these Morningstar Farms black bean burgers.

I also had the leftover broccoli and cauliflower from yesterday, for some non-starchy veggies


Plus more of my cantaloupe and pineapple. I’m glad just one of each of these has so much fruit! Keeping it cut in the fridge makes it so easy to just pack up what I want for the day or have some for breakfast or dessert without having to do any work.


We’ve got BodyPump after work today, then home for some leftovers and LOST!

I’ll be trying my baking project tonight, but I’m pretty sure it’s good. Nick ate a row last night, so 3 pieces, all by himself. I’d say that’s a good sign  :)

I’ll probably be working on ANOTHER baking project tonight for tomorrow morning, but this one isn’t my recipe. We’ll see how it goes! It’ll be my first time making this dish.

What’s your favorite veggie burger?

The Morningstar Farms Black Beans and the Boca Tomato Basil Pizza burgers are my absolute favorites, but I also really like the Boca grillers.


  1. The GardenBurger Portabella is my favorite!!! Super good!!!

  2. Morningstar anything :)

  3. What great eats!
    Broccoli and cauliflower are my two favorite veggies so the combo of the two is awesome!

  4. My favorite is the tomato basil pizza burger. I like to have it one whole wheat couscous with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese!

  5. Morningstar black bean burgers are definitely my favorite too!

  6. I haven’t tried many veggie burgers… I like Sunshine Burgers but it looks like there are some good ones out there worth trying! And I had that tea at a restaurant last weekend for the first time and really liked it.

  7. WHOA, your lunch looks super tasty! I totally want some!

  8. I’m a big fan of the Gardenburger Portabella mushroom one.

    Your tip of having pre-cut fruit in the fridge is a great one. That makes SUCH a difference in the time and effort it takes to make lunch in the morning. :)

  9. Yummy lunch! I LOVE the Amy’s Texas-style veggie burger!! and Sunshine burgers!

  10. That burger right there is 1 of my faves! 2nd on the list is Amy’s California-style burger.


    Bring on Sawyer.

    Hey lady, any chance you want to participate in my fight cancer bake sale coming up soon?

  11. Praeger burgers are really good, although they can fall apart when cooking sometimes. I love Numi tea too – their Jasmine Green is great!

  12. morning star asian style veggie patty. it’s a little oily, but i just blot that all off.

  13. I just bought Morningstar black bean burgers last weekend! I am pumped to try them because I haven’t found a veggie burger I really enjoy yet :)

  14. morningstar black bean, no contest!! i also like the asian flavor. and the gardenburger black bean chipotle is pretty good, too. but nothing beats the morningstar one!
