Walking and a Recipe

The past two days I've used the treadmill for 30 minutes a day AND I walked to do my errands. Yesterday that took about 30 minutes and today it took about 20 minutes. I'm thinking of doing some yoga in a bit since I just got a new yoga dvd.

Also, I've decided that I want to start sharing healthy recipes when I find them. I've been enjoying this one for the last couple days. It's sooooo good! I found it on a mommy message board I belong to.

Spicy Bean Salsa

1 (15 oz) can black-eyed peas, drained
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green peppers (I like this finely chopped)
1 (4 oz) can diced jalapeƱos, I'm a big wussy so I use green chilies
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 cup Italian salad dressing (I use the light version)
1/2t garlic salt

In a medium bowl combine all and mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

I've been eating this with Baked Tostitos Scoops. That was my lunch the past could days. Kind of like nachos without the cheese. We also had this for the Super Bowl, but added diced avocado to it.

What a great idea to share recipes!!! Yum! When I make it to the store next, I'll have to buy the stuff to make this. I'm gonna make the Peppery Potato soup this week the lower fat version! YIPPEE!! Thanks for the recipes. I can always use healthy yummy ones!! I swear I cook the same things over and over! Thanks!

This sounds good!

That sounds so good, but you NEED to add CILANTRO, I love anything that has cilantro.

Hi Natalie. I just commented on your other blog looking for an accountability partner. I lost a LOT of weight (http://janne.cc/blog/weighty-matters/) but then re-gained some and am looking for someone to help "keep me in line" (http://janne.cc/blog/2008/01/07/goals-for-2008/). LOL

I'd love to join you. Is this just your own personal thing? Or do you have a weekly check in for others? I need some accountability. Obviously, since I just polished off about 12 cookies. Ugh.
