I know what you’re thinking… Ew, right? Protein and Fiber? Sounds too healthy…
It’s important to be mindful of fiber for many reasons. Fiber plays a huge role in heart health and longevity and even increase satiety. Unfortunately, the average North American is not nearly meeting the daily requirement for fiber. Nor are they hitting the daily requirement for protein.
So I bring to you… Protein and Fiber Salad! (I’d try to give it a better name but Beans and Egg Salad even worse!)
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup edamame
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 boiled egg whites, diced
Directions: Combine all ingredients. Use 1 tbsp of a dressing of your choice and toss until evenly distributed.
