I’ve been trying to come up with some simple yet tasty vegetarian recipes because as I read in the bible in Genesis God gave humans all the plant based foods to eat. Originally we were not created to eat meat, processed foods and dairy products. I’m weaning myself and my husband off of those things because I have heard several doctors lately talking about how animal fat is really bad for our bodies. If we stick to a whole plant based diet we will be healthier. According to studies I understand that animal fat in meats and dairy products cause diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and some cancers. So I’ve decided to stay healthy by trying the whole plant based diet. I’m doing it slowly so at this point I still am eating some chicken, fish, some cheese and even a little processed foods but am trying to get some recipes that taste good as well as are very healthy. So today I tried a combination that was tasty and plan on putting it in my “Good & healthy Recipes” file. So I thought I would share what I created just in case someone else is looking to be a little healthier with some simple to make and tasty meals.
1 whole wheat flour tortilla
¼ large avocado
Can of black beans
A few slices of cucumber cut in quarters
Hand full of fresh baby spinach chopped
Your favorite salsa
Put can of black beans in a frying pan and heat up and mash as they heat. Mash avocado and squeeze a little lemon over it. Spread avocado on tortilla shell, then spread some of the black beans over that. Sprinkle baby spinach over that. Sprinkle cucumber over the spinach then spoon on some salsa over the top and wrap it up and enjoy.
