I need your recipes!!!!

Day six of this new diet.
You know what?
It's not that bad.
I did drool over the Cookies 'n Cream ice cream
that is currently residing in our freezer.
I nicely asked Dustin if he could move it to our
basement freezer because I'm afraid if I did it some might be missing
by the time it got there. :-)
The peanut butter jar held a strange fixation for me this morning.
I think I can have it, but I'm not sure, so I'm not going to
until I talk to her. It does have a lot of sugar in it.
Denying yourself is hard in all areas of life. And food is so big in America.
It is everywhere! I may have to stop watching commercials till the cravings pass. :-) Even if it doesn't taste good in real life, somehow they manage to make it drool worthy on the screen.
But there have been blessings.
I feel better.
Now that my cold is disappearing, I can tell I feel better.
How much better, I don't know yet.
Is it just one of my good days?
Maybe, maybe not.
I know this sounds superficial, but another is I am losing weight.
I was thinking today that this diet would be so much harder if it was causing me to put on the pounds.
At least when I have to say no to Cookies 'n Cream, I can say it's for a good reason.
Ironically, depriving myself of sweet food for weight loss seems much more worthy than hopefully shrinking a tumor.
See? So superficial am I.
But... if it is shrinking the weight, prayerfully it will soon do the same to the tumor.

But, back to the main reason I'm writing.
I could really use some recipes with Beans in them.
I've done chili, but, even that gets old.
So, if you have some, send them my way.
Thank you in advance!

I have a GREAT recipe for chicken & black bean wraps....I'll get it out and send it to you!
My husband loved them and he is "Picky Eater" personified :)

{So glad you didn't mind my comment :)}

My mother-in-law is actually on a very similar diet for her osteoporosis. I know she's been getting pretty creative with her beans :)

There is a natural peanut butter without sugar. I ate the kind without salt, too, :( for my diet, but it is still really good. A slab on celery and you actually feel like you are getting a treat.
