Best of the Bean: Main Dishes

Hi Friends!

Back again for Best of the Bean- Part 2! Today’s theme is entrees. As you may remember, hubby and I haven’t eaten meat in over a year, but for the first year that I blogged, we did eat meat, so I’ve included some vegetarian recipes, some meat recipes and some seafood recipes since we still eat seafood occasionally. You’ll have to excuse some of the terrible photos that come from back in my early days of blogging!

In case you missed yesterday’s post, CLICK HERE to check out Best of the Bean: Appetizers & More {plus an avocado giveaway!}

LGF is one of my favorite companies of all-time. The owners, Maddy & Alex are so young and passionate about what they do. I had the opportunity to meet them when I was in Colorado earlier this year and they took us on an amazing tour of their offices and production facility!

They work SO HARD to spread love, especially to kids, and their goal is to make sure every child in Colorado (and eventually the whole US) has access to a healthy breakfast. I’m so honored that I get to work with them.

Plus, their granola is DELICIOUS. I use it in all sorts of recipes including, cookies, frozen yogurt bites & bars, as a crust for fish, in my yogurt bowls…you get the idea. I’m obsessed.

You can find them on Facebook (CLICK HERE) and on twitter (CLICK HERE)….or check out their blog (CLICK HERE).
