We know you’ll love our Black Beans and Rice Street Taco Recipe

Black Beans and Rice Street Taco are sure to be a crowd pleaser at your house. We serve them up buffet style that way each person can create a personal taco with only what they prefer. Tex-mex meals have always been a favorite at our house when my kids were all young it was one meal I knew they’d all eat and enjoy!  There was a day when that was not an easy thing to do. . . luckily our taste buds change every seven years and palates mature so we no longer have that trouble! 🙂

Fit Friday!

 Today is a special Fit Friday. Why? Because it is my 40th birthday! Yep, you read that right today is my 40th and we are celebrating with a fun 40th workout.

I will be honest with your guys, I am not dreading 40. I don’t find myself feeling old instead I find myself feeling happy and confident. At least as happy as I can considering I still have a few more rounds of chemo to go. In my thirties I married a good man, and gained the privilege of becoming a step-mom to two gorgeous girls, along with gaining two of my own. I have learned how to be happy within myself. I don’t stress about numbers that don’t matter. I have learned to eat healthy food because that is what I want to eat. And I workout because I enjoy it not because I have to.

Speaking of workout…..we are celebrating my 40th with workout. That way you can all celebrate with me.

We are doing a series of AMRAPs today (as many rounds as possible). Work hard for those 8 min folks, earn your recoveries.

    Are the black beans cooked already? I read it as dry but then the instructions don’t make sense. Thanks!

    PS. I’d love a cilantro/lime rice recipe. I make it, but I’m not good at coming up with my own recipes and I know you’d make it better than I do!!!
