Mediterranean Bean Salad





This salad is a delicious and nutritious side dish. However, you can easily serve it as a main by adding an additional source of protein (e.g., boiled eggs, tuna, salmon, feta cheese, tofu, etc.) to make it more nutritionally balanced.


It’s packed with fibre, which will help you feel fuller for longer and is excellent for digestive health.


Beans are packed with essential nutrients and are a great source of fibre and plant-based protein. Therefore, they should be part of a well-rounded, balanced diet. While they might cause digestive issues for some, proper cooking and preparation techniques can help minimize this potential side effect.


The healthy fats in the EVO, olives, and avocado help reduce inflammation, improve cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of developing heart disease.
