Super Healthy Bean Dip

Super Healthy Bean Dip

This bean dip is packed with fiber, calcium, protein, iron and vitamins A and C. The flavor of the spinach is masked by the salsa and cumin, so it a great way to add nutrition to a delicious snack.

Garden Bean Salad

Very quick meal. You can make this lower in salt by using home-cooked dry beans and defrosted frozen green beans instead of canned. I always keep cooked dried beans in zip lock bags in the freezer – they thaw under running water in about the same time it takes to open a can.

Edamame Salad

Edamame are vibrant, tasty green soybeans in the shells, and are readily available in most frozen sections of supermarkets and health food stores. If edamame is not readily available, you can substitute chick peas.

Cucumber Salad

This is from one of the John and Mary McDougall cookbooks (Maximum Weight Loss I think). It is not 100% strict for Fuhrman because of the (small amount of) sugar, so feel free to modify or eliminate. I like this as a tasty alternative to lettuce-based salads.
