Fit Club Monday!

Today is Fit Club! I love Mondays. I get to get together with a good group of people, sometimes it is many, other times it is a one on one session. We workout, talk about healthy eating, motivation and anything else that comes up! (how hot is Shaun T????) If you'd like to be added to my email list (1 per week), please email me at!

This week's recipe is:

Southwest Bean and Corn Cakes
from Venturesome Vegetarian Cooking by J.M. Hirsch and Michelle Hirsch

Top these hearty, spicy patties with a fiery salsa.

1- 1/2 cups corn kernals
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour ( should be able to find this at a health food store)
1- 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp lime juice
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp paprika
15 oz can of black beans
1 med yellow onion, diced
1 med carrot, finely grated
1 -3/4 cups plain rice milk
2 tsp cider vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet.

in a large bowl, combine the corn kernals,cornmeal, flour, baking powder, cumin, slat, red pepper flakes, lime juice, cayeen pepper, black pepper and paprika. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, use a potato masher to coarsely mash the beans. Add the onion and carrot and mix to form a thick mixture.

Add the rice milk and vinegar to the beans and mix to combine. Add the bean and rice milk mix to the corn mix and mix together.

Use your hands to scoopsome of the dough to make burger-size patties. Arrange patties on the baking sheet and bake 15 mins. Flip the patties and bake another 15 mins or until crisp around the edges.

What helps to keep you on track with your fitness goals? For me, it's journaling, working out consistantly, and eating clean.
