This sounds really good. I want to try this and add avocado, olives and maybe some cheese. Btw I’ve been wondering have you totally stopped eating desserts? I know I have only scratched the surface of your blog so you may have mentioned this before. I just want to know what you think of things like black bean brownies.

I definitely do enjoy desserts, but its a rarity. It might be like a couple of cookies every month or so.

Black bean brownies actually can be kinda cool. When I eat a dessert, it has to be high quality and TOTALLY worth the experience. I did touch on the topic, here: https://blackgirlsguidetoweightloss.com/its-all-mental/how-to-indulge-like-a-grown-up-what-chocolate-taught-me/
