Many people overlook beans when meal planning, but they’re a great alternative to staples like brown rice, sweet potato, and oatmeal. Beans are packed with vitamins and minerals and have a good macronutrient profile.
This tasty, low-calorie recipe is from my cookbook Eat Green Get Lean and it can be enjoyed on its own or added to other dishes like these egg white bites, this breakfast pita wrap, or even these sweet potato chips.
