This delicious meal that features a tasty black bean recipe can be made even easier with the use of an instant pot or slow cooker. You will cut your prep time down if you make the beans beforehand, and they can easily be portioned out and frozen for weekly (or monthly) lunch and dinner plans. With brussel sprouts and tender scallops, this recipe is perfect for those after gym meals where you need to replenish your energy and protein without sacrificing your health goals.
Tasty black bean recipes can sometimes be hard to find but look no further. The secret is using pico de gallo, some cumin, and garlic to season it into a delightful mix. You can use dried black beans if you want to make black beans from scratch, but canned beans work too. However, dried beans may be cheaper in the long run if this is something you foresee making large amounts of at a time.
For sea scallops, make sure they are dry, firm, and smell like the sea. If they are shiny or wet, they are often old, and if they have a fishy smell, are way past their prime and you should skip. Make sure you don’t overcook the scallops when a quick sear will do. Scallops will shrink and be tough if you cook them for too long.
Depending on how you like them, you can steam or roast the brussel sprouts until they are tender and nutty. As a leafy green, brussel sprouts (which look like tiny cabbages) are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With these and beans at your side, it is very easy to switch up the scallops with another protein source such as beef, chicken, or fish.

What are you going to do today to show your body how much you care? Me? I’m going to treat this like any other day and eat fresh veggies & fruits with every meal and squeeze in some light exercise with cardio.
Today, I am reminded of one of my favorite scriptures, 3 John 1:2, that says “I pray that you may prosper in every way and be in good health physically just as you are spiritually.”
