Homemade Black Bean Salsa

I am starting to love meal prepping and having healthy food ready to eat in my fridge.  I’m not using the excuse that I don’t have time to make something healthy because of my busy schedule anymore.

I’m trying to find simple, yet delicious food to have on hand that is versatile so I can add it to other foods and create new meals every day.

This week is all about Black Bean Salsa.

If you would have asked me a year ago if I would have eaten it, I would have laughed and said no.  The texture of beans grossed me out.  I don’t know what has changed, but I add more lentil and beans in my meal plans.  It’s just another way to add protein, along with other nutrients in your day.
