There are a few routines that I try to stick to weekly when it comes to food.  Usually, on the weekends, I try to make at least one lean protein that I can use for lunches during the week, a big batch of roasted vegetables, and usually some kind of healthy starch.  Sometimes this is quinoa or brown rice, but usually, it's a few sweet potatoes.  I love having them around for quick meals and since I prefer them roasted (instead of microwaved), I like to make them on Sunday since they take about an hour.  Then I stack them with whatever I am in the mood for.  Lately, this has been anything spicy so I went for a classic combination of black beans, peppers, scallions, tomatoes, some chili powder, and of course a bit of melted cheese.  Easy, quick, and incredibly filling.

I made this without the cheese (because I forgot to buy it!) and without the cumin, chili powder or paprika. The spicy tomatoes were enough for me - I didn't drain their thick sauce. I also used a red pepper instead of green and 1/2 potato for each serving. Wow, was it good! I will definitely be making this again!
