Chocolate Magic Beans

Magic Beans
 
North Carolina just has better lighting than Germany (in winter). Period.

It would have been such a pity to photograph this pretty plate of yumminess in anything less than ideal lighting. Don't you agree?

Roasted acorn squash with cinnamon (yes, the store ran out of kabocha >< ), with WholeSoy & Co unsweetened plain soygurt (creamy and delightful, but with definitely edamame/soy flavor - it takes some getting used to), magic beans, flax seed, walnuts, and some Sunfood Incan berries that I got in the mail.

This was sooooo good! 
 
I loved the WholeSoy & Co. soygurt, because even though it took a few bites to adjust to the flavor, it was nice to have a non-dairy alternative to yogurt that isn't ridiculously stuffed with sweeteners. And non-dairy yogurt = a happier stomach for my somewhat lactose-intolerant self. I'm glad I got the chance to sample it and I'm definitely heading over to the grocery store for more!

Incan berries >>>>>> raisins/craisins. They're soooooooo sweet, even without added sugar (I'm looking at you, craisins) and have crazy protein and iron. Where??? They taste like sweet & tangy candy! Candy that's good for your immune system and improves circulation, that is. ;)

Okay, now that I've tortured you with pictures and pictures of my magic beans, here's the 2 second recipe:

Magic Beans

* 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed,
* 2 tsp. olive oil
 
1) Mash it all together with a fork. Enjoy rich chocolaty yumminess with a protein kick. ;)

Have you ever tried soygurt?
