2 for 1: Easy Black Bean Burgers & Guac Recipe

One of my favorite comments to receive on a social media post is, “recipe please!” While I wouldn't go as far as to consider myself an expert in the kitchen, I feel extremely happy when someone is encouraged to eat healthy by simply viewing my posts. Taking it a step further by trying one of my recipes is like the cherry on top. A few weeks ago, I made black bean burgers and guacamole from scratch. This was a first timer for me, and I tell ya, I definitely learned a lot along the way. If you've ever considered making your own black bean burgers, I suggest you continue reading to learn a few tips.

Homemade Pizza!

Who doesn't love pizza? Me! Lol, to be honest I'm not a huge pizza lover, but for some reason, when I smell or see others with it, I decide to jump on the bandwagon. Though I am technically not suppose to eat pizza, due to a dairy intolerance, I find it hard to resist. When I discovered a lactose-free cheese at Sprout Farmer's Market, I knew it was time for me to make my own pizza. It ended up being one of the simplest meals I've ever made. Let's get started!

Mason Jar Salads #latepost

Last week, one of my sisters from my Saved In The City Atlanta life group asked me about my Mason Jar salad recipe. She had seen a picture of me on Instagram at an event with Mason Jar salads. When she brought it up, I immediately realized that she had asked me about the same recipe two months ago. And then I realized I had yet to put the recipe on my blog. A few months ago, Cultivating Kerri was apart of a student health event called SHE (Student Health Empowerment) at Spelman College (my illustrious alma mater). It was a wonderful event encouraging students to live healthy, mentally, sexually, and in their lifestyle choices. Cultivating Kerri was invited to the event mainly to discuss the importance of healthy eating. As the students approached the vendor table, I discussed wellness, provided a few infographics, and sent them away with a cute little mason jar salad to encourage healthy eating on- the- go. Mason Jar salads are so convenient. Though a #latepost, I would consider this blog still very timely. The holidays are quickly approaching and i'm sure Mason jars will be awesome for those of us that like to avoid fast food. In the midst of my busy schedule, I am planning to incorporate more mason jar salads into my lifestyle and I hope you will do so too.
