getting back on track after all those Christmas cookies!

We all eat a lot better here
if I take the time to keep plenty of healthy
food ready to eat.
So after my grocery shopping trip yesterday,
I made up some granola...   

...and some yogurt to go with the fresh
pineapple and melon I bought.

And, I made up one of my favorite healthy
snacks:
black bean dip...

It may not look pretty,
but it is delicious,
especially with some garlic pita chips!

Black Bean Dip

15 - 16 oz can organic black beans, rinsed & drained
1 small can green chilies, drained
1/4 cup salsa
2 tsp cumin
1 clove garlic, pressed
a squeeze of lime
Process in food processor until smooth.

  13. Hi, just found your blog through Crumpled Envelope on Tumblr...and just want you to know that we'd be fast best friends if you lived here. We could get into some craft trouble together! Just wanted to say hi...we're kindred spirits...

  14. What size are the glass storage jars holding the flour and granola? I use recycled pickle jars but sure would like some of those square jars on my counter ;-)
