This time in our country has allowed us to witness something profound and moving about ourselves: We are made for connection. Our fond and deeply-felt wish to be connected with one another is very real.

I don’t know about you, but we are truly missing our neighbors and friends! [Yes, this is our new backsplash! Check out my instagram story later today for the install!]

Are canned black beans healthy?

Black beans are classified as legumes, but called beans because of their hard, shell-like appearance. They are edible seeds of the plant.

Like other legumes, such as peanuts, peas, and lentils, black beans are prized for their high protein and fiber content. They are loaded with about 10 times the antioxidants of oranges!

Beans keep you full for long periods of time and help stabilize your blood sugar.

What can I add to beans for flavor?

We add spices and ingredients, such as onions, carrots, garlic, and celery.

Now for my favorite VEGETARIAN Black Bean recipes! You can halve the recipes if you’re cooking for just two, or double and eat as leftovers. A few of these recipes you can freeze!

Back to connection. We can’t wait to be with people again! We’re already planning the get-togethers we’ll have after this is over! It’s good to keep dreaming and planning!
