Now that the holiday’s are over, most of us want to get back on track by eating healthy again.  Here is a go to recipe that I make when I want something healthy and fast for those busy weekday lunches. You can prepare this meal in advance by keeping your spinach and bean salad in separate containers, just combine once ready eat and to serve.  This salad is packed with protein, spinach and tomatoes to help you recharge for the second half of your day!
