The Nutritional Value of this 4-Bean Salad

This is a great recipe that is a healthy food choice.

Because I have been on a weight loss journey since July 2015, I have been trying new foods and am eating healthier than I ever have before.

I use an app on my phone to track my caloric intake. It’s called MyFitnessPal.

This app tells me how many macro nutrients each food has.

It also lets me create recipes that I can save.

I created this recipe and the nutritional details of this recipe are:

  1. Each serving contains 202 calories, made up of 39.1 grams of carbohydrates, 2.6 grams of fat, and 8.7 grams of protein.
  2. Each serving contains 1026.4 milligrams of sodium.
  3. Each serving contains 130.1 milligrams of potassium.
  4. Each serving contains 6.6 grams of dietary fiber.
  5. Each serving contains 21.4% of Vitamin A.
  6. Each serving contains 113.3% of Vitamin C.
  7. Each serving contains 5.7% of Calcium.
  8. Each serving contains 11.3% of Iron.

These % values are based on a 2,000 calories diet. (Your daily values may be higher or lower depending upon your calories needs.)

I’m not a huge fan of beans, but they have a lot of protein and fiber in them. So, I’m trying to increase my protein intake by eating foods high in protein. I also use protein powder on days when I don’t get enough natural protein in my diet.

I hope you enjoy this bean salad!

Share in the comments if you have ever tried a bean salad of any kind… and let me know if your recipe contained other ingredients. I’m always open to trying new things!

      You’re very welcome! 🙂

      I hope you like this salad. I only make it every few months. I particularly like it in the summer because it’s great to eat cold salads when it is hot out.

      Since you live in an area of the world where it is warm almost all the time, this recipe should be perfect for you. 😉
