Foods That Fuel Your Workout IV – Refried Beans

  Not actually fried, the beans are cooked and mashed creating a delicious spreadable paste. A half cup gives you a quarter of your   daily fibre needs and twenty percent of your daily iron needs. Add some salsa and your iron absorption improves. Plus you get 15g of protein, fuel for your workout and a tasty meat alternative. Some canned versions are very high in sodium so read the labels carefully.
