Recipe

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.
