Eating “Clean”

1/2 cup of cooked (boiled) pinto beans, 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese and 1/2 of an avocado. Dash of salt and pepper to taste.

This meal breaks down as follows; 90 calories for the cheese, 120 calories for the avocado and 120 calories for the beans. That’s a good and healthy meal under 400 calories, and it’s filling! Men would need a bit more volume and calories.

If your stomach can handle hot sauce, I would put some salsa verde to this! Or maybe some pico de’gallo 🙂

In California I am lucky to have so many fresh foods at my finger tips! As a vegetarian avocado’s are a big part of my life. In the past 6 years I have cut out soda, fast food and processed foods to the best of my ability. The change of my eating habits have caused me to feel a lot less bloated (yes, even eating the beans, lol!), fewer headaches, and an over all “healthy” feeling.
