Another great dinner!! The husband and I thought this one up a few days ago and I couldn’t wait to try it out! We ended up not having black beans, so we used white navy beans instead. I had lots of calories left so I added in some toasted walnuts – which went beautifully with the coconut!
- Frozen shrimp (about 20) thawed and peeled
- 1 cup navy beans, drained
- 7 oz canned pineapple (about 1/5 a cup)
- 1/2 a bag of green beans (about 6 oz)
- 1 oz toasted coconut
- 20 grams toasted walnuts
- Cinnamon and cumin to taste
- Brown rice on the side
And it was supposed to have avocado but we forgot!!
It was excellent, but I would recommend adding some of the canned pineapple juice, as it was a little bit dry.

My delicious lunch held me all afternoon, but I had my apple out of hand around 3:45. I was busy at work and wanted another snack around 4:30, but I decided that I could wait until dinner. The lightrail was much more crowded on the way home – I couldn’t even get a seat for the first 4 stops! But once I was reading my magazine, all was good 🙂
Here’s my apple with the Charlotte skyline as the backdrop:

Guess I should have had another snack! Off to red in bed and get all cozy next to the husband 🙂
