Mango Black Bean Salad with Sunflower Seeds + Citrusy Dressing 🌱🌻
I’m pretty obsessed with sunflower seeds and often add them to my salads. A tasty way to add some interesting crunch!
Mango is low in calories yet high in nutrients — especially vitamin C, which aids immunity, and iron absorption among other benefits!
Mango also contains several qualities that make it excellent for digestive health.
It contains digestive enzymes that help to break down food. Mango also contains lots of water, and dietary fiber – all very necessary for healthy digestion.
Mango is also high in antioxidants.
So not only is mango completely DELICIOUS added to our meals, but it’s something we can feel GREAT about eating!
Fast, Fresh, and SUPER TASTY!
