This recipe is great because it combines fresh produce and just a few healthy staples to create a nutrient-dense, low-calorie meal.The quinoa makes an excellent protein-packed base, providing 8g of protein, 5g of fiber, and decent amount of iron in just one cup. Additionally, the black beans are a great source of fiber which helps lower the amount of total cholesterol in the blood, as well as a source of plant-based protein, which makes this recipe well-balanced--especially for vegetarians who forego the chicken.
The avocado is even a nutritional powerhouse in this recipe, loaded with heart healthy omega-3 fats, fiber, and Vitamin E, an antioxidant that removes harmful free radicals from the body. With whole grains, lean protein, healthy fat, and great taste, this recipe is sure to satisfy your cravings for both good nutrition and great food!
