 Green Chili Black Beans are a tasty way to serve up any kind of canned bean~ it works great with most varieties. These Green Chili Black Beans will keep just fine in the fridge for up to one week. It's nice to have them in there, actually. We like to make them into bean and cheese burritos or just top them with shredded cheddar cheese and dig in with a bag of tortilla chips :) SO good!!

  It is Halloween weekend, not really much of a fitness weekend for most of us. My little guy also has a birthday on Halloween, candy and cake at our house. Plus the wrench thrown in with the craziness of making the cake, family dinner, etc. So let's talk survival.


1) Get up and workout! If this hasn't been drilled into your brain yet let me reiterate; morning workouts are ideal. Get up and get it done before the day has a chance to get away from you. Get it done well before it is time to go trick-or-treating. Get it done before the costume parade at the school. Get it done before the kids start crawling up the walls.

2) Remember that exercise is a corner-stone habit. Meaning it is one of those habits that others are built upon. If you get up and workout you are more likely to make healthy eating choices.

3) Start the evening with a solid healthy meal. Lots of veggies before the candy starts calling your name.

4) Pick your favorite and just enjoy a couple pieces. Then put the rest of it away.

5) Remember, one piece of candy does not mean all is lost. You can still say no to the rest of it. You can still get up and workout the next day.



Above all.....Enjoy Your Halloween!

Happy Fit Friday!! Much Love and Peace~ Nichole and Ruthie
