Monday, Day 16. How is everyone feeling? It was back to the work week for most of us, which sometimes brings mixed emotions. Gratitude for the employment, sometimes anxiety and sometimes, just a feeling like something is missing or a mix of all of these feelings in between. Do you really know your purpose and calling for your life? Are you living intentionally? Is there something that you need to let go? Do you need to find a level of peace at your current place of employment in order for God to open new doors? Do you have a dream that you just can not shake? A pull at your heart, one that keeps going back to something you truly desire. If no, then ask God to show you the purpose in your heart, the one that you were created for. And if yes, listen. Listen for the next steps and then act. Ask God to be the super to your natural to make it a reality. Remember, just as it says in the Bible, all our days are numbered. To honor God, truly honor him, then we need to live with intention and purpose and not with what society dictates for us. We are not guaranteed tomorrow.
Today’s recipe is simple and quick. Makes a great side, a topping over rice or quinoa, eaten with corn chips or over a yummy green salad mix.
Cannellini Bean Salad
1 garlic clove minced
2 Tbls. Olive Oil
1 tbls. Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbls. Red Onion, minced
¾ tsp. dried Oregano (you could also use dill, dried chives or parsley to change the use of the dish)
2 Medium Cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced (*note, seeding is optional, I just usually peel and dice)
1-15 OZ Can Cannellini Beans rinse and drain
1 Red Bell Pepper, finely diced (you can use a yellow, orange or green pepper depending on what you have on hand. It will still be a delicious dish, but will change the flavor slightly depending on what pepper you use)
Salt and Pepper
Whisk together garlic, oil, vinegar, onion, and oregano in a large mixing bowl.
Add cucumbers, beans, and red pepper; toss to combine.
Season with salt and ground pepper. Serve.
add diced avocado, add a can of rinsed and drained black beans or a small diced tomato.
Until next time,
may blessings abound
P.S:…this is important.
