Black Beans for Dinner?

So on my quest to be healthier and more organic I need to rid my cupboard of old foods. I found a can (which I recycled) of black beans from Trader Joe's mixed it with diced tomatoes, basil, garlic salt, diced onions, salt and pepper. I would rather go more fresh with fresh garlic and onions but I am being lazy today. It tastes ok. But placed with steamed broccoli and yellow squash will it fill me up--no meat!

I am not as good as it seems. Last night I scarfed down delivery pizza and Dreyers Mint Chocolate Chip. I did have oatmeal for breakfast with limited sugar and a free range turkey with flour-free bread sandwich. BUT I finished off the last of the Honey Nut Cheerios while watching Oprah this afternoon.

I am trying. This is good for me. I usually eat a lot of sugar everyday, it is hard to come off that sugar need.

Wish me luck....
