Black Bean Mango Salad Stuffed Avocados

Black Bean Mango Salad Stuffed Avocados1

Rich and creamy, avocados are packed with protein, which helps keep your energy up and hunger at bay. While it is true this fruit is higher in fat, it is the beneficial monounsaturated kind that helps increase the “good” HCL cholesterol and helps you feel satiated long after being eaten.

This colorful black bean salad delights the eyes as well as taste buds. Serve as a nourishing lunch or an after work out snack. Black Bean Mango Salad Stuffed Avocados are a delicious way to eat a variety of summer vegetables and truly “eat the rainbow.”
