My days are still hit or miss with how I feel physically, but I'm learning to adjust to that and it's probably good practice for when we'll have a newborn in the house and schedules are out the window. Slowing down in life has never been a bad thing for me, so I'm enjoying the lighter schedule and hopefully will see some spiritual growth as well.
Last week I sat down with a pile of cookbooks and browsed through them. While I'll always be a Pinterest fan, some days I get tired of scrolling through all my recipes on there and just want to flip through a good, old-fashioned cookbook! So I did! And I flagged all sorts of oldie but goodie recipes to make in the coming month. What's your favorite way to plan meals or find recipes?
And as a bonus for visiting me today, here's a healthy and easy salad recipe I've been enjoying for lunches lately. It's packed with protein and tasty, tangy crunch.
Simple Bean Salad
1 bell pepper (any color)
2 cans of garbanzo beans
1 package of grape tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
Chop the veggies, rinse the beans, and mix all together in a bowl. Mix the oil and vinegar in a separate bowl then pour over veggies and beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill in fridge and allow those tasty flavors to marinate together! So simple and very modifiable. I like to add extra tomatoes and extra red wine vinegar. :)
