Good evening! I whipped up a yummy Black Bean Quiche before my friend Harry and I went to go visit Future Husband’s little brother–he just got a new apartment.

Black Bean Quiche

This recipe is so easy and can be modified in many different ways. Plus, the slices freeze well and make a yummy, protein-packed breakfast (or lunch… or dinner…)! Even better, the recipe makes four servings and each is only 275 calories. I made a “Mexican themed” quiche:

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup brown rice
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons salsa

Preparation:

  • Heat oven to 350 and grease an 8-inch pie dish.
  • Mix all ingredients together (except salsa).
  • Bake for 40 minutes (or until center is firm).
  • Let cool slightly and cut into four slices.
  • Serve with a side of salsa.
  • Enjoy!

I had another small slice — it was SOO GOOD! šŸ™‚

After dinner, Harry and I drove 30 minutes to see Future Husband’s little brother new college apartment. On the way there, we stopped at the gas station and I got some fresh fruit — grapes! So nice to see options like this at the gas station. I had about 4 ounces (??).

This apartment is like the dream college apartment. Check out this view! I enjoyed a Miller Lite… college style. It was a 16 oz., but I only drank half. šŸ˜‰

When we came home, I needed something else in my tummy. I had 1/4 cup cereal, some yogurt, and a raisin + pecan mix. Hit the spot!


Lunch and Afternoon Snacks

Going back in time… around 4 Pm, I had two Wasa crackers and PB butter.


For lunch, I made a platter lunch of mini sandwiches (turkey + cheddar on WW bread), a plum, edamame, and carrots. I love platter lunches, they take SO long to eat!


I needed a pick me up, and I had an iced coffee as a sweet treat after lunch.


For a mid-morning snack, I had the MOST DELICIOUS peach ever!! MMMM!

I’m going to try to hit the hay early and go on a run in the morning… we’ll see!
