Mashed Rutabaga, Lime Black Beans, and Strawberries From Too Far Away
These fresh strawberries were a delicious treat! Why do I say the strawberries are from too far away? Buying strawberries in the winter means that:
The black beans were drained from a can, and cooked in a cast iron frying pan with about two tablespoons of lime juice and two tablespoons of olive oil, until the liquid was reduced.
The rutabaga was a leftover from a holiday dinner. I peeled and roughly chopped the rutabaga, boiled it until it was soft, drained it, and then mashed it with a bit of vegan margarine. I warmed it in the same frying pan as the beans, once they were done, allowing it to brown slightly.
All in all, this was a delicious breakfast that took less than ten minutes to make, and a welcome break from holiday overindulgence.
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
