Black Bean Vegan Salad – black beans – vegan protein – fitness recipe

I have always loved black beans since I was very young growing up. It is a big part of the Cuban Culture that I grew up in.

If you don’t have a pedometer to help you determine if you’re at a going calorie-burning pace, just think about how fast you’d walk if you were late for appointment.

  I love getting the famous saying of where do Plant-Based eating people get their protein?
