Snack #2 – Left-over Sesame-Miso Cucumber Salad & Β 1/6 cup of black beans w/ a square of dark chocolate

Workout: 30 minutes of cardio after lunch and before snack #2 and 60 minutes of bootcamp before dinner where I basically got my butt kicked

Remind me to never take weeks off from that class ever again!!

My delicious dinner was actually prepared by my aunt so I don’t have step by step pictures but I did want to share the recipes πŸ™‚

Black Bean Burgers

Ingredients

  • 30 0z can of black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat panko
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 Β medium jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 large egg whites
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Place black beans in a medium bowl and mash with fork
  • Stir in panko, cumin, oregano, sea salt, jalapeno and egg whites
  • Shape bean mixture into 6 1/2 inch thick patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, carefully turning once
Mango/Avocado Salsa

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups chopped mango
  • 3 tablespoons onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 avocado peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
Directions
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and toss gently.
We topped our burgers with the salsa and served it with romaine lettuce instead of a bun. You could always add the lettuce on top of the burger w/ salsa and place on a Whole Wheat bun. These are so good! I’ve been wanting to make black bean burgers FOREVER so I’m glad it finally happened πŸ™‚

Tomorrow I have a post on eating healthy for Cinco De Mayo – If you have a healthy recipe feel free to link it and I can add it to my post! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
