Black bean and mozzarella bowl

This black bean and mozzarella bowl puts a new spin on a weekday work lunch.  What else? Black beans are good for you!

Black beans are a wonderful source of dietary fiber which has been shown to naturally help lower cholesterol. In addition, the high fiber content in black beans helps keep blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making them a wise choice for people with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When black beans are prepared with whole grains such as barley or wild rice, the they provide a virtually fat-free, high quality source of protein. But that’s not all. Recent research also shows that these beans are rich in antioxidants as well. Antioxidants destroy free radicals, and when eaten regularly, have been shown to offer protection against heart disease, cancer and aging.

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
