Make this high protein, low sodium Beef Black Bean Enchiladas in under 30 minutes. Perfect for the busy family.
When I think of what healthier living means to me, it’s being intentional and balanced between family, work, habits, eating, exercise and everything that encompasses my day.
I know that thinking the right thoughts means choosing to listen to positive messages and friends. Exercising means going often to the gym or taking a beautiful walk or jog outside, or just creating a good habit.
Having a balance between work and family when you work from home, can sometimes have blurred lines and I have to choose when to shut down my office hours and focus on family time.
Make Healthier Dinner Choices
It is the same with healthier choices in eating. When you are home the majority of the day, it can be easy to eat snacks and things that are not the best for me. I keep lots of raw veggies in the refrigerator and drink plenty of water and protein shakes daily.
Recently in my meal planning, I have been using Black Beans as protein in several of my dishes. I have made black bean brownies for friends that were vegan and gluten free. They actually taste delicious, by the way. You can also put white beans in your smoothies. It is a great way to get high protein in your diet, and the best part is you can’t really taste the beans like you think you might. They just add protein and some density to your dish.
Last night I made these low sodium beef and black bean enchiladas. They were really quick to make and budget friendly.
Gather All Ingredients For Recipe
One thing I like to do when I make a recipe is to get all the ingredients out first. Make sure I have everything. Then open up the cans, but the spices in small bowls and see everything in front of me, while reading my recipe twice to make sure I don’t forget anything.
