Nourishment Notes

Black Beans

Black beans are a great source of fiber to help with digestive regularity and protein to help build new and healthy cells.


Avocados are high in calories. A high calorie diet may be necessary if unwanted weight loss is occurring. Avocados are also a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Sour Cream

Full-fat dairy products, such as cheese, cream, and whole milk, are high in calories. A high-calorie diet may be necessary if unwanted weight loss is occurring. Full-fat dairy also provides important nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and vitamin D.
