This one is packed full of fiber. It’s high in protein and low in fat.

2 16-ounce cans black beans                                         1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 can whole kernel corn                                                1/4 cup lemon or lime juice (optional)

1 small chopped roma tomato                                       1 small red bell pepper chopped

1/2 red onion chopped finely

Combine and mix thoroughly. You can eat it right away, but if you let it sit overnight it will be even better! This is good as a topping on baked pork chops or chicken, or you can mix in some boiled shrimp or sliced turkey and make a meal of it. It also goes great with scrambled eggs, or mix it with ranch dressing for a great southwest flavored topping. Be creative and have fun with this versatile add-on!

Blood sugar balancing tip:

Eating a protein along with fruit helps keep the blood sugars balanced. When blood sugars spike and then drop it signals the body that it’s hungry, so try to avoid those high sugar levels!
