Bean Burritos and Take-Out

Breakfast Oatmeal with Bananas and Unsweetened Carob Chips

Always makes the tummy smile :)

Yesterday I popped into Green Cuisine for some take-out vegan lunch... 

Tempeh sushi with black sesame seeds, Jamaican stew with curried 
coconut milk, falafel burger, arame seaweed, chili powder and cayenne

When I got home, I had a massive craving for a bean burrito. When 
was younger my mom would buy me a bean burrito from Taco Time at the 
food court when we went shopping at the mall. They were sooooo addictive!

But i'm no food court, so I had to re-create my own version of a bean burrito...

First, I spread cream cheese liberally on a brown rice tortilla while I cooked 
up some refried beans with red onions, black pepper and chili powder...

Then a few spinach leaves were added with the bean 
mix, before grilling everything on the George Foreman

Pretty darn delicious if I may say so :)

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! To those living in 
Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, Happy Family Day :)

I've been enjoying mexican lately as well! Brown rice tortillas are great for bean/veggie quesadillas!
