Healthy Quick and Easy Bean Salad

I like to eat healthy food as a matter of habit but sometimes it’s hard. If you just want a quick snack preparing something healthy can all seem a bit too much bother but there are plenty of very quick, very easy and affordable ways to avoid the biscuit tin or reaching for a loaf of bread.

Here I show you a basic bean salad which only takes 3-4 minutes to make and costs around £1.25 to make, yet it will serve as a snack or side for 2 people!

The ingredients again, in case you missed them;

  • 1 x can of mixed pulses in water, rinsed and drained
  • 1 x tomato, diced small
  • 1/4 of an onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of chopped, fresh mint and coriander
  • A pinch of finely grated lemon zest (optional)

Why you should try this;

  • Kcal140 per portion
  • Cost to make £1.25
  • High in fibre
  • Low in saturated fat
  • High in protein

Remember, food that is high in fibre and protein makes you feel fuller for longer so this is ideal if you’re trying to loose weight through a calorie controlled diet.
