Black Bean Burrito

How about Meatless Monday? Wouldn’t hurt, huh? Plus this is tasty! You won’t miss the meat. One burrito is under 425 calories so you can still add to the meal. Maybe a dollop of guac?

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
