Eating this Mexican rainbow salad is giving you the best! Look at the nutrition sheet and you will be convinced: filled with protein and good fat, it is also very generous in calcium (26% of daily intake), vitamins A and C (more than 100% of the daily intake) and iron (25% of the daily intake).

Black beans: a good source of iron

I like to use black beans in my vegetarian recipes. 1/2 cup black beans give you 15% of your daily iron intake, 6% of your daily calcium intake and 7 grams of protein!

I use them in my stuffed sweet potatoes and in my nachos, among others.

A low-calorie sauce

Sauces and dressings are often very caloric when bought or eaten in restaurants. I love using commercial taco sauce or salsa to spice up my Mexican dishes. With lemon juice and coriander, you’ll see that it gives a lot of flavor and it’s a binding agent both nutritious and very low in calories!
