There isn’t a day go by when I don’t think about new things which I could possible add to meals to make them taste better AND make them more nutritious. Of course, whatever I add absolutely cannot hinder my fat loss process! Today I wanted to show you one of the healthiest and best tasting things you could add to your meals to really beef your diet up!
Mixed Beans are an absolutely fantastic addition to any meal in my opinion. They are very rich in fibrous carbohydrates which are essential when you are eating the amount we do as athletes. More than this, it will help ensure our body is able to digest the food we ingest effectively. What is even better about Mixed Beans is that a typical 80g serving only contains 96 calories, and these are all healthy anyway!
In terms of taste Mixed Beans have a very earthy and moist taste to them which makes them the perfect compliment to a dry meal. Due to the fact there is a mixture including Chickpeas, Lentils, Adzuki and Mung Beans you really do get a very nice variation in taste and texture. The taste however is certainly not over powering; therefore even people with relatively bland taste buds would enjoy these!
So what is the best way to enjoy them with a meal? Personally, I love to get plenty of green salad on my plate and scatter Mixed Beans over the salad, and have a very low calorie dressing like a Balsamic Vinegar sauce. This way whatever I am eating, whether it is white fish or chicken breast tastes a lot more moist and refreshing. You will also find that they help fill you up because of the fibrous content, which is excellent when you are dieting of course!
The convenience factor of Mixed Beans is great as well, I mean they just come ready to eat in a packet, all you have to do it poor them over your meal after you have weighed them out!
There you go, a very simple and yummy addition to any meal! Try Mixed Beans on a salad with your meals I wouldn’t mind betting you begin to enjoy your meals more. The high content of water alone will stop meals tasting dry, and the added texture and flavour really stimulates the mind that bit more, opposed to bland dry meals! What more could you want, added fibre, improved digestion, no bad calories and a convenience factor of 10/10!
