FIT Foodie Fridays

FOOD:

I have to get better at reading and following recipes. But so far no major screw ups have occurred. :)

I love the 4 bean salad my mom used to get in the giant jar from Costco. I would eat a bunch of it and get yelled at because I finished it before she had a chance to eat any. Sorry mom! I decided to make my own. I looked up the recipes and there were just so many different versions and add ins. I wanted something easy and simple. C'mon I know what's supposed to be in there and how its supposed to taste, so I did my own thing. Sorry about the lack of measurements :( I'll get better with this soon!

4 Bean Salad with Beets

1 can of each:
  • Kidney beans
  • Chick peas
  • Wax beans
  • Green beans
  • Beets
Onions (thinly sliced)
Apple cider vinegar
Sugar
Salt
Black pepper

Really simple and basic. Open all the cans and drain, wash and rinse if desired. I didn't rinse my kidney beans and it left a bean-y flavor on there, but the vinegar cancelled that out. Pour in a bowl and mix, adding the onions. Put to the side. In a separate bowl, pour about 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and add 3/4 cup sugar. Mix well, add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the ACV liquid over the beans, beets, and onions; stir/toss together and refrigerate.

See? Really simple. Tastes great and takes no time at all to prepare.


FITNESS:

I won't lie to you, I have been slacking off on my fitness. I'm a busy girl and there is never enough time. But no excuses, so I will aim to be more diligent. I set my Wii back up with Wii Fit Plus and was instantly depressed. All my hard work a few months back was gone. Inches back on my waist and pounds. Ugh. I hate how it adds the weight to your Mii character. Saddies for real.

Hopefully I'll have some progress next time!
