Lovely spinach salad with cannellini beans

The thing about getting back to my normal diet of rabbit food and beans is that I am always hungry! It sucks! I put a half cup of rinse and drained cannellini beans on top of my salad so I’m hoping it hold me over at least until after the gym. Either way, I am…

Getting back into the routine
