Marianne's Black Bean & Mango Salad

By Marianne Andrews


A super quick and inspirational recipe for Menopausal Sanity! Beans & pulses are great foods for adding phytoestrogens to our diets. Menopause is the time when we need these in abundance. They not only provide a great source of protein, but they help to balance our hormones and even out those oestrogen highs and lows that can create so many mood changes & hot flushes.
