Romaine is a fantastic leafy green that is high in omega-3, calcium, iron and vitamin C. It's high silicon content helps to repair and renew joints, bones, arteries, and connective tissues. Romaine lettuce has antispasmodic properties that aid the cardiovascular system and the digestive tract. It also contains sedative compounds that relax the nerves and calm the body.
Avocado is easily digested and contains over 25 essential nutrients including iron, magnesium, and essential fatty acids that help the body to function optimally. Avocados increase the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients, so they are a wonderful addition to green leafy salads to ensure proper absorption of all the vitamins and minerals.
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 avocado, diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
1 cup diced red peppers
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 tsp olive oil (optional)
1 cup cooked black beans (drain and rinse if from a can)
1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup Fresh Tomato Salsa (recipe on the blog)
Juice from 1/2 lime
Sea salt (optional)

Arrange the tortilla strips on the baking sheet and brush very lightly with oil (if using). Place in the oven and bake for 2-4 minutes, until golden and crisp. Remove and set aside.
Place the black beans in a medium-sized bowl and add the ground cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and sea salt (if using). Mix well and set aside.
