Ha! I was so busy working on this Professional Development Portfolio (a simulation for one of my classes of the portfolios that read R.D.s have to complete to maintain their credentials) that I thought I had already posted lunch!
I broke at 2PM for a bite to eat. Despite my heavy run, I haven’t been too hungry. But I did have that huge breakfast at 10!
I made a bean burger with some of the leftover beans we have.
Mashed about 1/3 cup beans with 1 tbsp WW flour, 1 tsp olive oil, a splash of Worcestershire and a sprinkle of Emeril’s seasoning.
Form into patty and plop on skillet with cooking spray.
It wasn’t my best, but it was good with ketchup, mustard, tomato + spinach
Chips on the side
2 small plum(b)s
Munch. Crunch. Lunch.
Meeting Larbs for dinner at 7. Before that I’m going to the running shoe store. I called about my foot numbness and apparently that is NOT normal and shouldn’t just be acclimatization. I feel bad since I’ve ran in them for a week, but she said they would re-fit me.
Back 2 work!

mm i love bean burgers-i had one for dinner last night!
i really wanna try making my own bean burger sometime!
Meredith (Pursuing Balance) says
I love homemade bean burgers! So much better than frozen!
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
bean burger looks awesome! I’ll have to make one of those soon! Love the bun, too – looks extra doughy 😉
i love homemade bean burgers – hope the shoe fitting goes well!
those sweet potato chips are the best!
I am glad that the store is wiling to re-fit you, that is the sign of great customer service!
Oooo…numbness of your toes while running..yup not good! Don’t feel bad..you need to be comfortable while running. I had that happen to me too with a pair of runners and they took them back and re-fitted me with a new pair and it corrected the problem.
You bean burger looks good too!
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
i’m very impressed you took the time to make a burger.
Those Plums look FAB ! 🙂
Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries says
Did you use white beans or garbanzos? I can’t tell which lead to a better burger consistency…
Have a great weekend!
That shows that it’s a really great and customer oriented shoe store if they’re willing to re-fit you and allow you to exchange your shoes. I love running stores like that!
Shannon, The Healthy Beach Bum says
love that: “much crunch lunch” haha too cute. What a yummy burger! Thanks for the recipe. Will have to experiment with it for sure 🙂
Awesome customer service! And good for you for calling. I’ve put up with bad products before…I won’t do again. Guess I’m a “grown up” now!

I think that burger looks pretty good! However, ketchup makes anything taste better! Good bread doesn’t hurt either 😉
Glad you’re getting re-fitted! Numbness isn’t a good thing!
Beautiful lunch!! Love the sweet potato chips!!
Good luck with the new shoes!
Morgan (lifeafterbagels) says
I always feel super bad taking things back. I shouldn’t since I work in retail and I know how horribly people abuse return policies. They ARE set up for honestly people like you and me who genuinely aren’t happy with their purchases. I feel like I’m having a Dr Phil moment on your comment board right now. In conclusion – you deserve the right shoe, you paid for it!
I love that you just “throw” together a random bean burger for lunch. Talk about fresh fast food! You prove to the world that healthy, fast cooking is totally obtainable.
Good luck with the numb feet!
Hey Kath (or anyone else reading this who knows…), What’s WW flour? Thanks!
Great idea to make a quick, homemade bean burger! It shows that a “thrown together” lunch can still be healthy and delicious!

I love those sweet potato chips!!
Sharon, WW stands for whole wheat flour.
Cynthia (It All Changes) says
That’s why I love running stores. They stand by their products and by their work. 🙂
Looks like a good lunch!
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
Glad you were able to fit in such a delicious lunch. I LOVE homemade bean burgers… I have yet to make a combinatin I didn’t like, and they’re just so fun to play around with!

I love bean burgers!
Last time I had a bean burger, it wasn’t pretty…
I have a question about pasta:
From a nutritionist’s point of view, which would you say is the better pasta to eat: brown rice pasta (like Tinkyada) or whole grain/whole wheat pasta (like Barilla Plus)?
I’ve had both and I really enjoy both. I just wanted to see if one had more nutritional value than the other.
It was mixed beans. But I think black, white + kidney make the best burgers. Garbanzos are too dry.
I would say the whole wheat, but I’d have to see the ingredient lists to really make a judgement. If they are both 100% whole grain, then they are equal.
