Weighing in today at 176. That’s officially 10 lbs. since I started WW this year.
I’m doing the 30 day shred and I don’t think I will stop doing it after 30 days. Good workout and I’m not strong enough to get through level 3 in only 30 days. But I’m also doing Weight Watchers and that means I’m hungry all the time. I’m also broke. I have discovered the solution to all of these. The vegan black bean burger. Here’s the recipe but I wanted to share it because it makes a ton of burgers and is cheap and really good for you and only 2.5 WW points per burger which is less than a griller and WAY cheaper.
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
2 cups made oatmeal (that means you make it up and then put it in)
2-3 cups Panko bread crumbs depending on the texture you want
1-1.5 cups chopped onion
1-1.5 cups diced celery
2-3 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 small can diced green chilies
spices to taste
I use the following (great thing about vegan recipes is you can taste as you go along because there is no fear of salmonella or anything from the raw egg):
each burger should use about 1/3 cup mix and be “fried” in a little Pam or a little olive oil until heated through and a little crispy on each side.
