Carlene Thomas’s Healthfully Ever After website is a feast for the eyes! Carlene is a dietitian nutritionist, and along with her husband, Chris, they develop recipes and take amazing photos of food.
Carlene finds that beans are incredibly satisfying, an excellent source of fiber, and are a crop that helps to give back to the environment. She loves chickpeas but also thinks cannellini beans are amazing and blends them for texture to make soups thick and creamy without added fat.
When cooking beans, Carlene thinks about presentation — and it’s especially evident in this recipe, Winter Bean Salad with Herb Lemon Dressing. She made an entire salad of beans because they look great together!
