It s so important to feed yourself with the fuel you need to carry out a productive and energy filled day. I don’t give myself a Vegan or vegetarian title, because I love to have freedom. But plant based protein is not just easy to digest, but low is saturated fast and better for you. (in my opinion)

This recipe contains:

Black Beans

These nutritious and tasty legumes are available dried or canned, and both types provide the same health benefits. The benefits of beans come from a few different components, including high amounts of protein, fibre, antioxidants and micro nutrients.

Eating black beans can boost your iron intake containing 3.6 milligrams of iron per cup. Maintaining healthy iron levels is essential for preventing iron-deficiency anemia. Black beans are also a good source of calcium, with 46 milligrams per cup, and of potassium, with 611 milligrams per cup. Calcium is essential for building and maintaining bones, and potassium helps regulate your blood pressure and heart rate. Other micronutrients in black beans include magnesium, folate, zinc and phosphorus.

Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is one of the most nutritious and healthiest vegetables you can eat, with a rich array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as significant amounts of digestive fibre.

It not only tastes great, it is also low in calories, yet surprisingly filling. Many people would do well to replace fattening potato products with the far healthier and nutritionally superior butternut squash

Butternut squash is one of the healthiest vegetables for losing weight with its low calories and high levels of dietary fiber. It is loaded with antioxidant carotenoids to protect your body’s cells from damaging free radicals. The strongest vitamin in this squash is A.


Chili pepper contains an impressive list of plant derived chemical compounds that are known to have disease preventing and health promoting properties.
