From Real Simple:
These burrito mainstays boast antioxidants and magnesium, which helps maintain nerve and muscle function.
Try This: On a baking sheet, toss canned black beans with olive oil, ground cumin, and salt. Roast at 450 F until crispy, about 10 minutes, for a tasty snack.
I was extra excited about this recipe because black beans are so cheap and it sounds so simple! I did exactly as the recipe said, except I actually cooked it for about 20 minutes. The beans were not getting hard for a while. I also thought it would be smart to 'toss' them half way through. I end up regretting that move because since the beans were still soft it kinda busted some of them up. I will not do this next time. After I let them cool I put them in a Tupperware to bring to work!

I had the boyfriend taste them. Needless to say he wasn't too excited (probably cause they were not smothered in cheese!) I think they are quite tasty though and can't wait to not feel guilty snacking on Monday!
The same issue of Real Simple features Kale chips. I am going to give those a try next week! Stay tuned!
