This is by far the favorite breakfast in my household. And up until last year if you would have told me I would be eating tomato products on my eggs, I would have said "yuk, I don't think so." But after having this one time, I was hooked! It is delicious, healthy and will certainly keep you full way past lunch. And it couldn’t be simpler. Also makes a very quick and easy dinner!
2/3 cup black beans (rinsed and drained)
4 eggs
1/4 cup cheddar cheese (optional)
Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper
½ cup+ salsa*

1. Divide the black beans between two plates. Just pile them right in the middle of the plate!

2. Cook your eggs however you like them, we prefer fried for this recipe. If you are including cheese, right after you flip the eggs, top them in the pan with the cheese so it has time to melt. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Place the cooked eggs  on top of your beans and top the eggs with as much salsa as you like. Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley to make it pretty. Serve and enjoy!

*I think homemade fresh salsa is by far the best choice for this recipe (combine roma tomato, red onion, jalapeno, fresh lime, and cilantro; or try my Winter-in-Wisconsin Salsa!).

Long name, I know...but I just had to give credit to all the ingredients! Everything about this salad is wonderful- tastes fantastic (this might just be my new favorite lunch), is exceptionally quick to whip up, and contains only powerhouse ingredients.
To really jazz it up, eat it on top of a bed of lettuce and add some tomato wedges! 
This makes two good-sized and filling lunch servings. Omit the tuna and you have a nice side dish for dinner!

1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed 1*
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup sliced or slivered almonds
¼ cup finely diced red onion
¼ cup crumbled feta cheese 2*
1 can tuna fish, drained and flaked
1-2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
1-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp dried oregano or dill….or both!

Simple: combine everything in a bowl and mix gently until combined.  Enjoy!

1* My favorite brand of beans, by far, is Eden Foods. You may also substitute garbanzo beans in this recipe, but if you haven’t had great northerns, I urge you to try them.

2* If you don’t like feta cheese, you could substitute some finely diced cheddar- that would be good too!
