Protein Power Lunch

Introduction

My trainer gave me this recipe to eat for my mid-morning meal while I was training for a fitness competition. You can also add shredded cheese and microwave to make a great party dip for tortilla chips!

  • Very Good

    The sodium is really high for a single meal - this is due to the old el paso refried beans - I will use pinto beans and mash them myself - this cuts out 1193mgs of sodium. Another note: this is enough food for two servings which makes it an EXCELLENT high protein LOW CAL meal, too! Kudos & thanks - 5/14/09
