Not feeling the sandwich thing today? A great hearty soup recipe by www.slimsanity.com features white beans for protein and broccoli for complex carbs. Use fresh organic broccoli and dried white beans for best flavor. If pressed for time the recipe works well using frozen broccoli and canned organic white beans.
