It comes as a bit of a shock; I've discovered I really enjoy black beans. They are a nice addition cooked up with the mushrooms. In general I am surprised how much I love salad. Over the past weeks I've developed a desire for my daily salad and think I would be at a loss if I didn't have one. Even the days when I start the salad prep uninspired by the time I am sitting down to eat the salad I am excited and enjoying my food. It has brought a consistency to my life at the same time a lot of variety because every day content changes. The only downside is the time it takes to prepare and even that doesn't really bother me (just everyone else in the house).
