Healthy Option

So, I can admit it. I've gained approx. 5 lbs dealing with the stess of this move. So I've dictated no more junk food all the time. Hence why we've been eating a ton of things like chicken tacos with homemade black bean and salsa. In fact, I loved the black beans and corn so much that I came up with this quick simple meal.

I baked 4 Tilapia filets seasoned with cumin and cayenne pepper at 350F for approx. 30 minutes. While those were cooking I chopped up some red onions and sauteed them in a small amount of olive oil over medium heat. I took 2 cans of black beans and about a pound of corn (we used frozen corn kernels) and put them in a pot to heat up. When everything was done, the plating was easy.....simply put the beans and corn on the plate, lay the tilapia filets on top and sprinkle the cooked red onion over it.

Voila! Fantastically tasty little meal.

And bonus points, because we had quite a lot of beans and corn left over so whenever we got munchy we would eat a small portion of it.


  1. Don't talk to me about putting on weight through stress......

  2. Opps! That was me above.
