My Own Concoctions

Black Bean Soup

BRRRR It’s chilly here today so I decided to make some soup, its in the 40s so I am very cold. I haven’t quiet adjusted to this whole “northern lifestyle” yet. Any ” how to stay warm tips” would be greatly appreciated.

Anwayss, I soaked some black beans the other day and wanted to make some use of them, so I made a Mexican inspired soup that includes a few Super Foods! Plus it packs a hefty dose of protein if you add in the collagen!img_3708


1/2 Cup Soaked Black Beans

2 Cups Filtered Water

1 Tomato

2 Cloves Garlic

1/2 Cup Chopped Red Onion

1/2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Chili Powder

Himalayan Sea Salt and Pepper to Taste

Fresh Squeeze of Lime Juice

Optional: 2 Scoops Vital Proteins Collagen


  1. Add water, onions, garlic, and black beans to small sauce pan
  2. Set on high heat until boiling, once boiling reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for about 35 minutes or until beans are soft
  3. Add tomatoes, chili powder, pepper, salt, and  lime juice, continue to simmer for 2 minutes
  4. Remove from heat, place in a bowl, plop in the coconut oil and collagen and enjoy!

* A sprinkle of Cilantro is also a nice touch! Plus its a awesome for removing excess heavy metals and is a great source of vitamin A.
