Yummy Black Bean and Potato Tacos:
Serves 2, but really easy to add more!
Potatos (any kind - I used red potatoes) - diced - about 1/4 to 1/2 c per person
Black Beans- drained and rinsed - about 1/4 to 1/2 c per person (I used 1.2 a can for hubby and I and we have leftovers)
Cheese - grated - (I used pepper jack and was also 1/4 to 1/2 c per person - we LOVE cheese!)
Mini Flour Tortillas - soft taco size
Vegetable oil (for frying the tortillas)
Garlic - FRESH! - to taste, but I use a lot of garlic in my house. I used about 5 cloves. All chopped finely.
Pepper - to taste
Salt - to taste
Jalapenos (canned) - 1/4 c. diced
Sweet Jelly or Sugar (About 1 Tb. - I used Habanero Jelly, but you could use sugar or honey, or something else sweet)
Green Onions - I used 2
Onion - I used Maya sweet onions, 1 small one.
Tomato - 1 - but more would be great too!
Lettuce - Couple leaves
Lime (for the juice)
Orange (for the juice)
How to make them:
Step 1: Make the filling.
In saute pan, drizzle olive oil, and add 1/2 the chopped garlic, 2/3 of the chopped onion, and the potatoes. Saute until soft, but browned. Add the black beans and the green onions, and squeeze in the juice of half a lime and also half an orange. Saute until heated through and a sticky consistency.
Step 2: Make the sweet salsa.
In small bowl, combine: tomato, rest of the garlic, sweet jelly, rest of the chopped onion, juice of 1 lime, diced jalapenos, salt and pepper.
Step 3: Make the tortilla shells.
Heat vegetable oil in saucepan. Holding the tortillas with tongs, fry, folding into a taco shell as you go. Drain on paper towels.
Step 4: Grate the cheese.
Grate your cheese! :)
Step 5: Slice the lettuce.
Slice your lettuce up nice and thin.
Step 6: Put it all together!
I put them in this order:
Taco shell + cheese + filling + lettuce + salsa.
There you have it. The End. And they look like this:
Oh, and then you eat them! nom nom nom nom nom....

So... it's that time again. In 2 more days I will begin a long haul juice fast/detox/overall body, mind and soul cleanse. And I can't wait. My body has been fighting me lately... many signs that I am long overdue for a starting over, a refresher, a begin again.
When I did my 28 day juice fast awhile back, I found that I had so many benefits: I had clarity of mind, my skin cleared up, I lost weight, I felt energized... buzzing with energy in fact! I loved how I felt during and afterwards. The biggest difficulties I found were that I was not prepared for any backup plans (my fast got cut short from a power outage.. and honestly.. I felt pretty ready to stop at that point) and also that I was not prepared for how to handle my mind and body during this time.
So, this time I have been prepping for about a month now, and I can honestly say I am SO ready to go. Sunday it starts. And I'm going for a full 60 days. We will see at that time if I need to reevaluate my end date... I may just go ahead and go on longer up to 100 days. We will see. I'll be blogging AND vlogging like I did before. I'll lay out further details on here this weekend so you guys can know what to expect. Okey dokie, thats all for now!

I've been MIA for awhile, and I admit, I've been off of my own path. Well, its tome.to.move forward. I've been learning about myself, and seeking truth in.my life, and areas of my life which I was not entirely sure of before. Well, to be honest, I don't know if anyone else has felt like this before, but for me, I think that my whole life's journey is finally peaking and is gaining momentum. My eyes are seeing things clearer and my heart is feeling stronger.
I feel like my life is becoming my own.

....and let me tell you...
It's kicking my Boo-Tay!
I love it though. I was looking in the mirror today and I was like hang on.. is my fat roll kinda tightening up? Then I sat down and I was like, WHOA! Whoa... whoa... is my stomach flab resting on a little less of my thunder thighs? And so, I was like... hmmm... I gotta see this...
So, I measured. (I had to know, right?) I know, Kat... (my Beachbody Coach) - I'm not supposed to be checking this stuff for like 2 more weeks.. but I just HAD to!
And, here's what I discovered....
In the last week and a half, I have completed 5 total workouts of Insanity (after each of which I truly thought I might die..). I have cleaned up my diet just a little... (there is SO much room for improvement). I have stopped drinking wine every night. AND...
I have actually LOST a half of an inch in 3 different areas of my waist!
How's that for results in a short period of time!
So, I'm off to do tonight's workout: Plyometric Cardio Circuit...
Which although sounds mighty disturbing... I mean, c'mon.. "plyometric" - what kinda word is that?
I know it will all be worth it in the end...
Toodles and have a beautiful night!
