Hearty Black Bean And Veggie Salad For A Great Meatless Meal

If you like to have a few meatless meals at your house during the week like I do then you are also probably always on the lookout for new recipes to try. This one is a great way to serve a meatless meal and its perfect for summer because it contains a lot of summer vegetables. The black beans in it will fill you up and according to Worlds Healtiest Foods, ” From a single, one-cup serving of black beans you get nearly 15 grams of fiber (well over half of the Daily Value and the same amount consumed by the average U.S. adult in one entire day of eating) and 15 grams of protein (nearly one third of the Daily Value and equivalent to the amount in 2 ounces of a meat like chicken or a fish like salmon). You won’t find this outstanding protein-fiber combination in fruit, vegetables, grains, meats, dairy products, nuts and seeds, or seafood.”

So you will get plenty or protein and lots of fiber from the black beans and that is only one ingredient in the salad. There is also avocado which Web Md calls the “Nutrient Allstar” and tells us ” Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium (which helps control blood pressure), lutein (which is good for your eyes), and folate (which is crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy). Avocados are a good source of B vitamins, which help you fight off disease and infection. They also give you vitamins C and E, plus natural plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer.” Armed with this info, if the salad only had these two ingredients it would obviously be very healthy but it has other vegetables as well so it just keeps on adding nutrition to your meal.
