Brown Rice, Black Beans, and FF Feta

I have been on a kick with finding new recipes lately. This has been a favorite of mine with the Body Beast program. It's not a recipe from any specific book, it's just one that I kinda threw together and it's awesome!

It is kinda carb heavy but I don't care. Some days a girl just needs her carbs!


  • 2/3 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup cooked reduced sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 oz FF Feta

  1. Cook rice according to the package.
  2. Place black beans in a pot and add water to cover beans.
  3. Heat beans while rice is cooking.
  4. Drain beans again and add to rice.
  5. Top with FF Feta. 
  6. Enjoy!!!

Here are the stats for this recipe, as I made it, according to MFP. These stats will vary based on the specific brand of ingredients you use. 

Calories: 395
Carbs: 86
Fat: 3
Protein: 20

Fiber 14

If you choose to cut back the beans to 1/2 cup, your stats will look more like this:
