When we experience a health condition we often feel we've done something wrong. We perceive it as bad news and, sometimes desperately, look for a way out, a way back to health.

So many people find that their emotional experience after being diagnosed, the feelings of fear or dread, are worse than the physical symptoms of the condition. The quality of their life is affected more by the way they relate to the news than by the condition itself.

Quick & Easy Corn & Beans (Serves 2-3)

  • 1 - 15 oz. can refried beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • ¾ cup salsa

Add all ingredients to a pan and heat on medium.

Serve and enjoy.

We sometimes eat these with Corn Thins and add a lettuce salad that we throw together as the beans heat.


It's great over potatoes too if you want to take the time to bake or boil a few.

Note: the quality of the beans, corn and salsa can make a big difference in the overall taste of this dish. Since we’re using commercially prepared products, the quality of the ingredients can vary widely from brand to brand. We use Amy’s or La Preferida organic refried beans, Stahlbush Island Farms frozen corn and Que Pasa medium organic salsa.
