Simple to Make Traditional Black Beans and Rice Recipe

June 5, 2017

Plus, black beans carry enough protein just as equal to poultry and seafood, in addition to vitamins in greens equivalent to spinach and broccoli. So when I heard Goya Foods launch their “Better for For” product line, I had to try their low sodium black beans.  I’m normally not a fan of canned beans, but…

The pasta is served topped with shredded Mizithra cheese (a Greek hard…

February 17, 2017

I love chia seeds, but I’ve only tried it in my lemonade or water.  When I first heard about this chia seed pudding, I knew had to try it.  After all, chia seeds are known to be a mini powerhouse packing more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries and more Omega-3 than Salmon.  The chia seed is one of the oldest forms of nutrition in Mexico, Guatemala and other Central American Countries, dating back to ancient Mayan and Aztec diets,…
