Too many carbs getting you down?

Today's a great day to release yourself from the large amount of carbohydrates that you consume during Lent.  How about trying a simple green salad with a three-bean dish for protein?

Here's What Ya Need:
Spinach * Field Greens * Sliced Zucchini
Clementine Oranges * Lite Dressing of Choice
Kidney Beans (drained) * Black Beans (drained)
White Beans (drained) * Chopped Red Bell Pepper
Chopped Onion * Chopped Tomato

Here's What Ya Do:
1.  Throw spinach, field greens, sliced zucchini and oranges into a bowl.
2.  Put in a few teaspoons of dressing with pepper and mix.
3.  In another bowl.  Add kidney, black, and white beans.
4.  Add red bell pepper, onions and tomato.  Pepper to taste. Mix.

Place the salad on a plate (if you have sesame seeds add them on top!).  Take 1/4 cup of the bean mix and place in a small ramekin.

This is a great way to get your tummy back in order and try something different for dinner.  So long, I have to pack up Diego's stuff for his school trip this week.  They're taking my baby to outdoor school and I have to make sure he has everything he needs to feel like his mommy's there.  Pray for him and for me...I don't know who's going to cry more when he leaves on the bus in the morning!
