I’m a huge fan of black beans as a protein source. Not only do they provide protein, they’re loaded with fiber that helps fill you up and keep your blood sugar steady, minerals such as iron (great for non-meat eaters) and B-vitamins. Here are some of my favorite black bean recipes:
Best Ever Chili: This chili wins raves for taste and easy preparation.
Sweet Potato Burritos: Satisfy your craving for Mexican food with these hearty burritos.
Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad: Make the sweet potatoes ahead so you have the fixings for this salad ready to go on a hot day.
Shrimp Tacos with Black Beans: I prefer this with grilled shrimp. Yum!
