Are you feeling it yet?
All of you fellow Not Naturally Narrow friends out there, are you feeling the pressure of the holiday binge?
I am! Due to the most stressful summer of my life, I have put on some poundage. I am currently 10-15lbs over my goal. That's nothing too major compared to my once 263lb self, but it's a slippery slope.
Typically over the winter months I carry a little extra weight anyway and I'm having some anxiety starting out above what I'm comfortable with.
I am going to start blogging some helpful recipes. For those of you who have been around a while they will seem familiar. Today I'm posting the 5 can bean soup (with a side of beano). This is a winter favorite of mine and it's super filling and healthy.
My goal is to lose my 10lbs before the holidays smack me in the face with pumpkin pie.
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1 can rotel
1 can pinto beans
1 can red beans
1 can great white northern beans
1 can kidney beans
2 chicken breasts (optional)
Put all ingredients (dump entire can juice and all) in a small crockpot on low for 6/8 hours or high for 3/4 hours. Once the chicken is tender shred it up. You can trade out any bean you like. I often put a can of black beans rinsed and drained vs the pinto beans.
I love to eat this with low fat shredded cheese, fat free sour cream and salsa on top. YUMM!!!
