Hello & Happy Monday!!

 

 

 

 

Since this past year, I’ve gotten more and more into spicy foods. (I couldn’t handle spice for well.. my entire life, don’t judge me lol)

 

Spicy foods can actually boost the metabolism and offer more flavor to classic dishes! I also find that when something is spicy I feel satiated much faster than if I consumed non spicy foods. Thus aiding in not overeating and ultimately weight loss.

What’s amazing about this dish is not only how wonderful the flavors combine, but that you can make large portions for just a few dollars and even throw in more veggies if you’d like to get more of a nutrient boost. 

 

So in a nutshell, filling, flavorful, and SUPER affordable!
