Life has been a bit hectic, I must say. I spent so much time, prior to getting pregnant, focusing on my health (mental and physical) that I am ashamed to admit I've slacked off since actually becoming pregnant. It drives me crazy when people use pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever they want and not exercise. Now that I've experienced those lazy moments, I understand - not 100% - but I've definitely eaten more doughnuts than I care to admit. There have been work stresses, family stresses and, now, "am I a bad mom if this is my second milkshake of the day" stresses.
Either way, my husband and I were both in desperate need of a vacation and Belize was the perfect getaway. We slept in, we relaxed, we snorkeled and fished. We laid around, read magazines, talked about baby names (no decisions yet!) and just enjoyed each other's company. Oh, and we ate delicious food.
1 pineapple, cleaned and cored
1/2 white onion
1 can black beans, rinsed
juice and zest from one lime
small bunch of cilantro
salt & pepper to taste
Chop your onions first and then let them soak in water while you prepare the rest of the salsa, this will help lessen the strong flavor of the onion. Chop the pineapple - roughly the same size as your onion pieces. Put the pineapple in a bowl and add your black beans. Zest your lime and then juice it over the mixture. Add in your onions. Chop the cilantro and add it, as well as 1/2 t salt and pinch of pepper (more or less to your tasting).
Let the mixture sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving with your favorite tortilla/corn chips. You could also eat this salsa over fish or chicken too!
