Make this for Dinner: Spicy Rainbow Rice and Beans
I’ve had this recipe saved in my bookmarks for probably over a year and I only just made it for the first time last night. All I can say is… What the heck was I waiting for?! This one goes in the super, super easy category and it’s a new favorite of mine. Cook the rice, saute the spices & veggies, mix everything together, and bam… You’ve got yourself a very tasty, healthy meal! It’s also great because if you wind up with leftovers, it stores easy and can be re-heated quickly if you’re on the go. Can’t really beat that!

If you’re like me and have a GNARLY sweet tooth, you will be likely be extremely tempted by desserts. The trick of course, to stay on track with your diet, is to get CREATIVE in the kitchen! I mix my protein powder with just about ANYTHING to make a yummy dessert… and it does the trick! Try this simple recipe, which is under 200 calories (depending on the toppings and extras). I can eat this without the graham cracker or jelly/fruit and still be satisfied by its yummy goodness! =D
