As you likely know by now, I am a sandwich-hater down to my bones. I hadn’t posted on the topic or shared a sandwich-less lunch recipe in a while, but my my sister’s excellent guest post last week inspired me. After a week on vacation eating a lot of heavy foods (hello, bacon every morning), I have been craving fresh, raw, whole foods. Beans, rather than meat, have sounded like the most delicious foods in the world this week! I made a big batch of this super easy black bean salad on Sunday night, and I’ve been working my way through it for lunches:
Black Bean Salad
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tomatoes, diced
2 bell peppers, diced
1 c corn (I used frozen)
Italian dressing to taste
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Done.
Friends, it’s really delicious. Also, has anyone had Popcorners (pictured above)? We buy some whenever we go to our wholesale club, and it’s a miracle if the 18-serving bag lasts a week. I like to tell myself that Andrew is eating more than his share, but in reality I think I am the culprit. Last Sunday we took a risk and bought two bags and agreed that no matter when we finished the first, we could not open the second until a week had passed since purchase. This will prevent us from the entirely possible scenario of eating 36 servings of popcorn chips in one week. Hah!
Have a great Thursday!
What’s been in your lunch box this week?
Have you tried Popcorners??
