Black Bean Chili

Black Bean Chili

Posted by Anthony on April 6, 2015 in Soup


Serves: 6

Time: 35-40 min

Difficulty: Easy

Being a big fan of soup, I’m always on the lookout for new recipes — or at least variations on recipes I’ve made before. Well one of my all-time favorite soups is black bean chili, which I recently found a recipe for on the Beachbody Blog. I used their recipe as a base, but made a few tweaks of my own based on what I thought would be good additions. The end result was nothing short of my quintessential black bean chili — it’s hearty, healthy, Vegetarian-friendly, all sorts of delicious, and pairs perfectly with some Sweet Cornbread Muffins. And it made for another nice addition to my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Vegetarian Black Bean & Brown Rice Burgers

Vegetarian Black Bean & Brown Rice Burgers

Posted by Anthony on March 21, 2015 in Entree


Serves: 6

Time: 20 min (active), 10 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Medium

For a while now, I’ve had a hankering to try my hand at making a nice, healthy black bean burger as part of my 50 in 15 Challenge. Well tonight, I finally gave it a shot. I found a great recipe from the Beachbody Blog that I ended up using. It’s vegetarian-friendly, is a great source of protein, and is an amazing (and dare I say, better tasting) substitute for many meat-based burgers. The process of making these burgers is pretty straightforward and easy, but I will warn you that it gets a bit sticky once you start to form the patties. Trust me though, it’s well worth it, as the end result is nothing short of phenomenal.

Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

Time: 1 hr

Difficulty: Easy

I’m a big fan of granola. But I find that many of the store-bought options are lacking in one way or another, such as being bland, containing ingredients I don’t care for, or containing unhealthy preservatives. Luckily, I found a wonderful recipe on the Mother Nature Network website, which after a couple very minor modifications, is now my go-to recipe for Homemade Granola. It’s really easy to make, and provides a great option for a natural, healthy snack.

Some mornings, we all just feel like changing it up a bit for breakfast. For instance, rather than just doing simple scrambled eggs with a side of toast, why not combine the two and make a healthy, savory breakfast bruschetta? It’s ridiculously easy to prepare, and really doesn’t take that much longer. And the result is a delicious, healthy, and attractive breakfast item that can be eaten without utensils.

Heart-Healthy Minestrone Soup

Heart-Healthy Minestrone Soup

Posted by Anthony on January 18, 2015 in Soup


Serves: 6-8

Time: 50 min

Difficulty: Easy

I’ve been on a big soup kick lately. And on a relaxing Sunday afternoon (especially during another Michigan winter), there’s something especially comforting about making a fresh batch of homemade soup. I’ve made a variety of soups already, but today I tackled a heart-healthy homemade Minestrone for the first time, and boy was it delicious. It proved to be a perfect addition to a side salad for the first course of our dinner of Lasagna Rolls. And since it was my first time making Minestrone, I am also able to check off another recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge.
