B for Boxing B for Beans!

I have a really busy week ahead, so I have to try really hard to keep the blog going and the gym and still have some social life, that’s a task!

Yesterday went with D. to my weekly Boxfit class, I still remember the 1st time I went, I was filled with dread with what looked at the time such angry faces… I thought to myself, they take this really seriously blah blah, but nowadays I love it, it grew to become my favorite class at the gym, and people are nice not mean 😉

A friend offered me the opportunity to get my body composition measured, of course I said yes, so will let you know the results next week.

So tonight my other half and I did one of our house dinner favorites :

Bulgur wheat with black beans and chickpeas

Ingredients :

Make a stew with the veggies, always starting the mediterranean way with garlic olive oil and onion,adding the rest after, let it cook for around 30m or until the sauce from the tomatoes reduce to a thick sauce.

I cook bulgur like a cook rice, but read somewhere that you can cook it like couscous with boiling water in a tight container.

And this is the final result! It’s easy and quick to make and totally delicious!

What are your – rice/pasta/potatoes- substitutes?

Note : Bulgur makes a healthy and quick addition to any meal because it’s 100 percent whole wheat that’s specially prepared to decrease cooking time. It’s a good source of fiber, protein, iron and vitamin B-6. Eating whole-grain foods, including bulgur, may lower the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.
