In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 block of cubed tempeh (1/4 inch wide cubes), 1 cup mild salsa, 1 can of black beans, 1 finely chopped red pepper, 1/2 medium-sized onion (finely chopped) and juice of 1 lime. Mix well. Add 3 tsp of taco seasoning. Cook till onion and peppers begin to soften. Mix in some finely chopped cilantro. Serve with avocado and brown rice or salad.

Here is a high protein, high fiber, and a low-fat meal. If you pair with avocado and a salad, it is lower in carbs too (even though we love whole grains). It is also ridiculously quick and easy to make.
