BLACK BEANS AND YELLOW RICE
My family likes this meal with a raw vegetable salad and cornbread.

Black beans are among my favorite and there are so many ways to prepare them. Whenever possible, use fresh spices and ingredients. Use whole grain rice for increased nutritional value. Turmeric has many benefits and when added to the cooking water changes the color to yellow. http://www.lifescript.com/diet-fitness/articles/herbs/turmeric.aspx
Adding ginger to beans aids in digestion and helps eliminate the gas.
