Southwestern Bean Salad

Beans pack a big fiber punch, and have a surprising amount of antioxidants. Fiber found in whole food sources, like in broccoli, beans, and artichokes fed the good bacteria in our gut responsible for clear skin, elimination, and creation of vitamins without our bodies, like vitamin B.


Serves 1


2 cups thinly sliced Romaine lettuce
1/2 ripe Hass avocado, chopped
1/3 cup canned black beans, rinsed
2 tablespoons jarred salsa, mild, medium, or spicy


Place the lettuce and avocado on a plate. Place the beans and salsa in a small bowl and toss to combine. Spoon over the lettuce and serve immediately.
