Mixed Beans and Tomato Salad

Beans are a great source of fiber and healthy protein–something that is tragically missing from the American diet. When your first start eating foods rich in fiber you will notice that you will become more regular (that is the nicest way I can put it), but you might also be a bit more… gassy (sorry, there is no better way to put that). After eating fiber-rich food for several weeks your body will readjust and it will no longer be a problem.

CAUTION: if you are consuming beans or any other foods that are rich in fiber, try not to eat anything containing simple, refined sugars, you might regret it… you will have a “moving” experience.
