Lunchtime a la McDougall

"Pictures say more than 1000 words", right? So just to show (again) how my lunches look like, this time completely Mc Dougall approved ;). 

1 baked potato, 1/2 c black beans, 2 c turnip greens, 2 small tomatoes, salt & pepper and some hot sauce, done!

 Mixed it all up. It was sooo good and I was full afterwards!!!

This one is actually from his book 'Quick & Easy cookbook' and is really a super simple dish! Barley, beans, corn, onion, bell pepper, mushroom and a few peas thrown together (sauteed in a pan), spiced according to your taste, done! Low cal,  super filling and super yummy!

And even though this is completely unrelated, I think it's too pretty not to share!:

Today's sunset! It's been raining and thundering all day (completely with constant power outages we sadly get immediately with this kind of weather!.. *eye roll*) but when it cleared up and I was looking out of the kitchen window, I saw this gorgeous sunset, so I rushed into our son's room, from where I got a better view (since it's in the top floor of the house) and this is what I got! [Above!]
It usually looks more like the pic below! 


  1. Looks really yummy and I love the sunset. So pretty!

    Have you ever had the black bean sloppy joes? I just posted about them a few days ago- one of our favorite McDougall recipes.

  2. Thank you, Molly!
    No, I haven't tried the black bean sloppy joes yet, but I'm curious now! ;)

  3. Love the photos. The beans AND the sunset look grand!

  4. It all looks so yummy!...and the sky is awesome!

    ~Have a lovely day!
