My First Black Bean Burger!

OK, so I don’t love beans.  I’ve never been a huge fan of them in dishes or chili.  I like black beans in fresh salsa and that’s about it.  When I saw a recipe for a black bean burger on one of my go-to sites (, I was hesitant but wanted to give it a try.  Let me tell you, I was so surprised!  There is so much flavor in this recipe.  I did make a couple of changes though…I am big on texture.  I was worried that smashing the black beans with a fork wouldn’t be enough for me.  So, I tossed them in my magic bullet with some water (maybe like 1/4 cup) and gave it a whirl.  Which means I needed to add more breadcrumbs too.  But if you like beans and texture doesn’t bother you, then I would just stick to this recipe because it is delicious! Also, I didn’t add hot sauce because I wanted them to be kid friendly.  I did top mine with some cheddar cheese and smashed avocado.  I served it on a piece of toasted Ezekiel bread with Romaine lettuce and vine ripe tomatoes.  I have leftovers too…and I am thinking an egg on top of this burger will be ridiculously yummy.

I don’t have much to say other than this is an amazing video and I will support this movement all the days of my life.  I will empower my baby girl and I will teach my son to do the same. Teaching our children to have self confidence is one of the greatest gifts we can give them.

PiYo is HERE!


 PiYo is HERE!!  

I am so excited for the release of Chalene Johnson’s new workout program, PiYo.  I have been a big fan of her workouts since I did TurboJam back in the day.  I also did Turbofire (very modified) while pregnant with my first baby.  Chalene’s upbeat attitude, positivity, and encouragement radiate right through the TV screen and into my living room.


Who Should Do PiYO? 

EVERYONE!  It is a high intensity, low-impact workout that can be modified to meet everyone’s needs.  I don’t know about you but I have pounded my body for years.  I remember stacking a picnic bench ON TOP of the picnic table because I wanted to be like Shannon Miller in the 1992 Olympics.  Lets just say that I didn’t “stick” all of my landings.  Add playing sports, working out, never having  making enough time to stretch and take care of myself….well my body is ready for something different.

PiYo is inspired by Pilates and Yoga. But if you know Chalene, she had to take it up a notch.  There are no weights and everything is done by using your own body weight to build strength, get defined, and burn those cals!
