Sonoma Day whatever!

OKay, so i cheated over the weekend... who here has NEVER cheated on a diet!?!?! Yeah that's what i thought! lol But i still did follow some rules, some of the time~
On Thursday this was my lunch...
Black Bean Chicken in a Whole Wheat Pita

my stomach was SOOO full after eating this i couldn't eat the salad i brought to go with it and i didn't eat my two snacks later in the day! I couldn't i was sooo full! Yeah this is the SAME Pita i had on Monday when i was starving! My stomach is getting smaller! So here's what you do for this super yummy and fast lunch.
Take a whole wheat pita and cut it in half.
In each side place a tbsp of blk bean spread (recipe below) and a tbsp of salsa.
put in 1.5 oz ck in each side. (i bought these recooked chicken packets that have 6oz so i know i get half the pack in one sandwich.
Then load it up with 1/2 c baby spinach in each side
Chow down!
This is so filling!

1/4 c sliced green onions

1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 c water
1 tbsp lime juice
