Day 16 - Black Bean Burritos

Day 16 and it just keeps getting easier. I've been finding many local vegan markets and restaurants. This has made finding new food ideas easy. I made the recipe below last night and I can say that I will be definitely be making it again soon.

Many studies have shown that a low-fat diet improves health. You don’t have to put a lot of time and effort into making a nutritious reduced fat meal that tastes great too. Black beans contain cholesterol-lowering fiber and they’re packed with high-quality, fat-free protein.


1 15-oz. can vegetarian refried black bean
4 flour tortillas
2 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
2 tomatoes, sliced
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup salsa


Heat the black beans on the stove or in a microwave.
Warm tortillas, one at a time, in a large dry skillet, flipping to warm both sides until soft.
Spread warm tortilla with approximately 1/2 cup of bean mixture.
Top with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, avocado, and salsa.
Roll tortilla around filling and enjoy.
