Yummy!! How can opening a can of baked beans, adding water, milk and seasonings to mashed potatoes, adding a green salad taste so good?? Put it all together &  waalllaaa!!  I’ll give you a few tips to make the mashed potatoes a little yummier and lower the fat amounts too!! Enjoy!!

You probably noticed that there’s no meat here, if you prefer add a piece of chicken, beef or fish to your plate! However beans and potatoes make a complete meal in itself!! Yay!!


Baked beans:

We love Busch’s baked beans; Maple & Cured bacon& the one with onions! Delicious!!

Make it vegetarian by choosing the B&M beans!!



Mashed Potatoes:



  • Use instant potatoes for fast mashed potatoes!
  • I’ve made the mashed potatoes plant based by substituting the milk with a almond/coconut milk!!
  • Also I  made the entire instant mashed potato box, added 2 1/2 tsp garlic powder, sprinkle with black pepper25B49FE4-3D04-4657-9CF6-9696F5E95F8B
  • Make it low fat by leaving out the  butter! Yummy!


Simple, affordable and delicious!! This meal can also be a low fat, vegetarian/ vegan for those on a plant based diet!!

Im a mother, blogger and have come to enjoy the wonderful outdoors living in Maine for over 20 yrs!! Its been a whirlwind of change and never ending projects at our homes that helped me see the need to be physically active and work towards healthy eating, and a balanced mind!! My passion in life is inspiring others to make good changes, besides getting out and exercising what has helped me is the bible and its message of hope :) My Blog is all about the many projects in life we have, the good eats-food (vegetarian, and vegan included) that im cooking up in the kitchen, and the gorgeous nature inspiration: all of which helps me feel happy!! I love sharing with you!! follow along & be inspired!!
