The other day I got a big package of Mary’s Gone Crackers products and I started thinking about what I could dip them in.  While I love all types of dips I figured I should maybe  try something on the healthy side.  I love bean dip and it’s a good source of protein.  Plus, I thought it would taste good with Mary’s Gone Crackers Original.

And I’m all for quick and easier and this recipe couldn’t get much quicker OR easier!  You only need 3 ingredients:

  • 1 can of refried black beans
  • 1/3 Cup sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup salsa

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat until hot.

I like to add a bit of grated cheese to the top.  Everything is better with cheese, right?  My kids enjoyed this dip too and it makes a great snack!

Did you resolve to eat more veggies in 2015?  I’m not very good about setting solid goals and sticking to them but I did have this nagging in the back of my head saying “eat your veggies!” So I have a very vague resolution to get more vegetables in my diet.  I’m not sacrificing anything getting them in either.  If it means consuming them with cheese and bacon, that’s cool with me.

I generally like broccoli but normally prefer it cooked.  That is until I tried a broccoli salad at a Halloween party last October.  It was so good I had to have the recipe.  I just asked for it a couple of weeks ago.  That’s how good the salad was.  I was still thinking about it months later. Luckily, my friend was happy to share “Mom Smalley’s Broccoli Salad Recipe” with me and I actually had the ingredients (or substitutions) on hand except for the broccoli.

Mon Dec 29 2014 21-24-25 GMT-0800

Mom Smalley’s recipe calls for:

  • 1 large bunch fresh broccoli
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 10 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Dressing:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

I substituted SuperSeedz Pumpkin Seeds for the sunflower seeds and at the suggestion of my friend when I mentioned I hated chopping onions, I replaced the fresh onion for 1/2 teaspoon onion powder.  I also cheated and used store bought bacon bits.  I’m lazy like that.

Directions:

Chop broccoli into small pieces.  Mix with the raisins, cheese, nuts, bacon and onion.  Mix together the dressing ingredients then combine with everything else.  Super easy and SO delicious! Trust me, you’ll love eating your broccoli!broccoli salad

It may be debatable, but I’m going to call this recipe healthy since it’s main ingredient is a dark green vegetable. :)

Last week’s motivation was a 10 minute challenge.  Be sure to check out all of the past Motivation Monday posts for more inspiration!
