Quick and Easy Avocado Black Bean Salad!

The following recipe is a household favorite.  So easy to make and can be made a day or two before hand.  We often eat is as a meal, but you can use it as a side dish as well.  This gives you a nice balance of good fats, protein and carbs!

 

AVOCADO BLACK BEAN SALAD

1-2 Ripened Avocados (diced)

1pt Grape Tomatoes  – halved (or fresh diced tomatoes)

1 – 14 oz can Black Beans

¼ c Favorite Vinaigrette Dressing

Works well with  Red Wine Vinaigrette, Raspberry/Walnut Vinaigrette or even just olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar

 

  • Drain and rinse black beans until all the bubbles are gone (gets rid of excess sodium and excess gas!).

  • Mix Black Beans, Avocados and Tomatoes together

  • Pour vinaigrette over and mix in.

  • Cool in refrigerator for 1-2 hours (even better overnight!)

Hope you enjoy!! I am working on soup recipes – any suggestions or requests are welcome!

Listening to the Tribe

I have spent some time away from my business and my writing trying to find my voice. Funny though, because working with clients and writing is where my voice is. I think many times we let everyone else’s voices come in and tell us what they think we should be doing. Even when they don’t directly say it, we feel it. Oftentimes because of this we start to believe it and lose focus on what our individual purpose is. One size does not fit all. We are all unique and should be able to express ourselves and not worry what other people think. Their judgments are none of your business and reflect on their lives, not yours.

I wrote the following while walking today and thinking about how we tend to conform to the group (or tribe) we are with. I hope it speaks to you, but honestly, it only needs to speak to me 😉

The Tribe

 

I used to talk with the trees

And they gave me guidance

But I listened to the tribe instead

 

I used to feel the earth

And the earth sent me messages

But I listened to the tribe instead

 

I used to hear the birds

And they sang wisdom to me

But I listened to the tribe instead

 

I used to see the flowers

And they showed me beauty

But I listened to the tribe instead

 

I used to talk to the whispering leaves

I used to feel the earth’s vibrations

I used to hear the bird’s song

I used to see the beauty

Until I listened to the tribe
