I have mixed it up a bit though. I cooked up a pound of white beans and have been using them in various ways, one being my green smoothie. I like to get some protein in whenever I can, so I used 1/2 c white beans, collard greens and frozen banana along with cinnamon, nutmeg and stevia. The beans are so creamy it lends a nice texture to the smoothie.
This morning, I did yoga and wanted something more brunch like, so I threw together this delicious raw collard salad. I used cooked white beans, carrots, raisins, chipotle sunflower seeds and my low fat balsamic dijon vinaigrette.
I plan on making some Indian food in the next several days. I will go grocery shopping tomorrow. Also, I will be making my sugar free banana bread and posting that recipe. I was going to make it this week, but my son was at his dads more and wanted to wait for him to be here so I didn't eat it all myself! ( even though it's healthy, I don't need the extra calories! )
