Back from my little weekend getaway. I absolutely love little mini vacas once in awhile. It felt so great just to get away for a bit and just completely reset. Oh yeah and it was in vegas!! woot! Did I win my millions??…sadly no..but I still had a great time. I hit the gym every morning and played alot of Pai Gow. Unfortunately I took my crappy camera with me..(I wasnt about to take a good camera to vegas..!) and I so forgot to charge it. So no pics. Ahh well. I think they frown on that anyways inside the casinos. Despite having a good time I was glad to be back.
Back to my huge wonderful veggie bowls…
A wrap with some laughing cow cheese, radishes and tomatoes..
And even an awesome workout to boot too! Ahh good to be back.
I was seriously craving all this stuff while I was gone. Even though it was only a few days its funny the things that you start to miss.
For dinner I really just wanted a huge filling pile of veggies. No real recipe but just kind of what I threw together.
Sweet Potato with Kale and Ancho Chili Cherry Beans
1/2 sweet potato
2 c. kale
1/4 onion, sliced
1/2 c. beans ( I used kidney beans since it was what I had, but black beans would have been awesome too!)
1 Tbsp. garlic
3-4 large cherries, pitted and diced
1 tsp. ancho chili sauce
stevia in the raw ( I used roughly 1/4th packet to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
Steam bunch of Kale. Place steamed sweet potato on top. Grill up onions and pile on. Heat beans, cherries, garlic and anchos. Slighty smash and pour on top. Season to taste with stevia, salt and pepper and enjoy.
So fast, easy and tasty. Kind of a sweet and spicy combo.
When I got back I had to run to Whole Foods and grab up some of my beloved squash.
Roasting in the oven now and getting ready to be topped with some almond butter.
Right now its cold and rainy again…(cant believe Im saying that! ha!) and Im so rocking the jammies and getting ready to put on a movie. Its just one of those perfect nights for it.
Do you enjoy little mini vacas? If so what are some of the things that you miss the most while you are gone? Do you have any favorite places you like to hit up?
