Venezuelan Black Beans and Rice

Mixing rice and beans together makes a nice pilaf dish.  
Make lots, as this is a great filling for wraps made for tomorrow's lunch!
Note that there are no health needs to eat rice and beans together, as we get all the amino acids needed from the protein in whole plant foods when consumed throughout the day and week.

Kathy’s Kale Chips

Here's a standard recipe for a tasty, crunchy treat that is a good alternative to chips.
Kale is a darling of plant-based eating, because as a cruciferous, colorful vegetable of the cabbage family, it is a powerhouse of antioxidents and other phytonutrients, which fight against disease - cancer, inflammatory, as well as vascular.  But hey, all cruciferous vegetables are powerhouses!
Consider drinking water with this lovely, crunchy snack since this is a dried whole food.

Hummus Plate

Hummus or Middle Eastern chickpea spread is so satisfying and versitile, as a snack with veggies and rice snaps, in a wrap or sandwich, a stuffing for mushroom appetizers, or diluted for a salad dressing!  It's easy to keep it low-fat by abstaining from adding oils.  If you need to control weight, avoid further added fat by eliminating the tahini (sesame butter).

Mock Tuna Salad

This is a very satisfying alternative to a tuna salad, that can be used in sanwiches, wraps or salads.  Make more than you think, as it goes fast!
