While On Holiday I can’t Help It…

…but think about healthy eating.

A group of us women decided to take a trip to this tropical destination for a week and at the time it sounded like a wonderful suggestion – until I remembered why it is I haven’t been here for the longest time. Too expensive, and a tad bit too touristy. Not the right island you might say, or recommend other more rural locations – which I get. But the over the top expensive, combined with an increase in crime, among other factors makes this destination less desirable for me at least.

Nevertheless, I only have a few more days and then back to the normalcy. I realize while I walk the pavement back and forth on the main boulevard, in between the hours one is not really supposed to be at poolside or the ocean, panting and dragging along as a result of the muggy weather, I crave healthy eats. Or actually my own kitchen just so  I can whip up something healthy like this recipe.


  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, slightly drained (NOT rinsed)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (adjust to taste)


  • 1 tsp avocado oil (or other neutral-flavored oil with high smoke point)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced (stems / seeds removed)
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • Sea salt to taste


  • 1 medium head cauliflower (riced)
  • 1 tsp avocado oil (or other neutral-flavored oil with high smoke point)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice (optional)  – {more}

Have you ever been on a trip where you can’t wait until it’s over?

Also, what you need to know about probiotics and prebiotics – I had no idea there was a difference?
