Beans + Music – Fart Jokes = This Post.


(Am I making up for the weeks of gratuitous unposting… maybe. Is it driven by guilt? Probably)

I’m not only about food, you know. My three other passions happen to be Music, Men’s Fashion and Fitness/Health. I’ll be showing you guys that side of me a little more. Right now, here’s a recipe for a healthy bean and quinoa salad and here’s the song you should listen to while you make it. These are two similar salad recipes that I threw together because I’ve been hitting the gym a lot and could use a protein source that a) doesn’t come in a bottle and b) isn’t going to eventually give me stomach cancer. Let me be clear, I’m not anti-meat. Obviously you’ve seen plenty of it on the blog, but I am all about having things in moderation, and in this country we don’t eat enough food that is actually all out beneficial for you. So this one is for all the people who want to take care of themselves and those who know swimsuit season is fast approaching… this ain’t no Game of Thrones bullcrap folks…
