Miss. Busy Bee

It has been a busy last couple of weeks. School has started up. Haven't had much time for fun, but that's ok...I sneak it in here and there! Running keeps me sane, and hopefully the yoga I've just started will do the same.

Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna in the works.

mmm...perfect amount of spices! topped with greek yogurt and green onions.

whoops, not in the right order....ready for the oven.

Cocoa chili. I came home last night super hungry and wasn't sure what to make. I whipped this up quickly. Turned out pretty good but even better today. Super thick and rich. Contents: 1 can of black beans, 1 can of whole tomatoes, crushed, cocoa powder, cumin, chill powder, salt, pepper, a touch of sugar, bay leaf. Simmered for about 20 minutes. Topped with raw pepitas and feta cheese. Carrots and a slice of Ezeikiel bread. Fav bread, made without wheat. Use lentils and other protein instead. There is a actually quite a bit of protein in this bread. And it has an awesome chew. mmm, love chewy bread!

As for my lunches, well they are usually really boring so there hasn't been anything to post. But I assure you, as soon as I eat something exciting for lunch I will post it!

Here is the recipe for the Indian Shepherd's Pie. Sorry for the delay.


Instructions (hope you can read them...)

This is the recipe for the Pumpkin Spiced Chickpeas I used in the recipe rather than canned chickpeas. It added a lot of flavour. The perfect spices for fall.
