Dysfunctional Chef: Seconds Anyone? Back-on-the-Bandwagon Baked Beans

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to try out a new vegan “chicken” dish.  I was so sure that it would be great, that I called a few friends and said, “Come on over for dinner.  I’m making a vegan meal and I promise that it will be, at the very least mediocre.”  We laughed, but in the end the laugh was on me!

Lo’ n’ behold, three-quarters of the way through, I tasted the sauce and I was like…”YUK!”  And now what?  People are coming and this dish doesn’t even live up to its mediocre promises!  What to do?

Our Lady of Weight Loss to the rescue.  She pulled the following recipe out of her Habit, and we got busy dicing, chopping, stirring and humming a happy tune!

Here, Second Chances Back-on-the-Bandwagon Baked Beans, giving Second Chance February a whole new meaning!

Ingredients:

3 strips Turkey Bacon
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup shallots, diced3 cloves garlic, diced
1 Tbs. chile powder
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can pinto beans, drained
1 – 14 1/2 oz. can red kidney beans, drained
2 Tbs. hot sauce, smoky flavor (chipotle will do well!!!)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
salt n’ pepper to taste

Directions:

Cook turkey bacon as directed on the package.
In a large pot, combine olive oil, shallots, and garlic; cook on medium heat until shallots are soft (about 5 minutes, more or less).
Crumble cooked turkey bacon; add with remaining ingredients.
Bring to boil and then simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Dishes like this are just as good if not better the second day, so I make enough to last!!!

Enjoy!!!

#OneWord Thursday: 9 Quotes – #Progress Equals Happiness

Progress on Parade ~ by Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Progress on Parade ~ by Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Are you making progress? It has been said that those who experience that they are making progress are happier. Any type of progress will do! So…are you? Making progress?

Here, 9 Quotes about Progress, from the Queen of Progress, that can help you to clarify your progress!

I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way. ~ Carl Sandburg

And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction. ~ Kurt Vonnegut

Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.   If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. ~ C.S. Lewis

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb. ~ Winston Churchill

To reach a port we must set sail –
Sail, not tie at anchor
Sail, not drift. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Restlessness is discontent — and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man — and I will show you a failure. ~ Thomas A. Edison

There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment. ~ Marcus Tulllius Cicero

Well, I always know what I want. And when you know what you want–you go toward it. Sometimes you go very fast, and sometimes only an inch a year. Perhaps you feel happier when you go fast. I don’t know. I’ve forgotten the difference long ago, because it really doesn’t matter, so long as you move. ~ Ayn Rand

Remember, progress comes in all sizes!  Any amount is a good thing!

Deliciously yours,

Janice

Coach Yourself Thinnish: What would losing weight give you…

Your Gain IS My Pain...contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

Your Gain IS My Pain…contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

What would losing weight give you that you wouldn’t otherwise have? What will losing weight do for you?

People say, “My resolution is to lose weight.”
To which, I reply? “What will achieving that goal give you and/or do for you?”

Whatever your answer may be, continue to ask, “What will achieving _____ do for me?”

Example:

Q: What will losing weight do for me?
A:   Losing weight will help me to create a healthy lifestyle.

Q: What will creating a healthy lifestyle do for me?
A: A healthy lifestyle will create more energy?

Q: What will having more energy do for me?
A: I will be able to get more things done.

Q: What will getting more things done do for me?
A: I will feel accomplished and good about myself.

Continue to repeat the question so that you can unearth what is near and dear to your heart a.k.a. your values.

The more specific, the better. The more clear you are on what your values are and what achieving them will do for you, the more likely you are to manifest your goals.

Makes sense, yes?  Of course :)

Please weigh-in on Our Lady of Weight Loss’s KICK in the TUSH Club/FB page! Share your wisdom, your struggle, your smile, your frown. It’s all grist for the weighty mill.

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Promises? Promises?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

We are one month into the New Year. One month into our resolutions. One month into our promises.

That’s right. We promised ourselves a myriad of things, which may include: to lose weight, to exercise more, to de-clutter, to stop smoking…to walk the straight and narrow.

We promised to get our act together in some way, shape or form.

And which each promise, you experienced a burst of hope followed by a wave of excitement and elation; didn’t you?

Your intentions are good but sooner or later – as soon as you hit an unavoidable bump in the road – self-doubt sets in and your inner-critic pipes up.

“I knew you couldn’t do it.”
“What’s wrong with you?”
“You’re no good, you’re no good, you’re no good.”

(Am I right, or am I right?!)

Sooner or later your river of hope and enthusiasm runs dry, and you return to your “default setting.” The old habits return, take hold and there you are and here you go again.

Please take a moment to think about what it means to make a promise to yourself.   When you make a promise to another and deliver, they have faith in you. When you don’t fulfill your promise, your integrity plummets and you feel rotten to the core.

When you promise yourself something and you deliver, you are happy with yourself, you have faith in yourself, you trust yourself, you love yourself; and when you do not deliver, your feelings about yourself plummet.

Would you say that you feel a real sense of sadness, a sense of loss and betrayal?

Before we repeat the past, which is exactly what we don’t want to do (we want this time to be different, don’t we?! ), let’s do a little exploration.

If you are going to promise something to yourself, make sure that it comes from the heart, and that you have enough energy and enthusiasm to deliver this promise.

If you do not want to make a promise to yourself, then do not! It’s your choice.

Share your thoughts and your promises on Our Lady of Weight Loss’s KICK in the TUSH Club page/FB!
