Braised Red Beans with Brown Bread

Many health conscious people and weight watchers choose brown bread. I think it is a smart choice, it is always good to eat healthy. Recently I started eating brown bread and I try to come up with many ways to make it tasty every time by adding  spices and veggies. I select brown breads made from wheat bran not sure how healthy it is compared to the usual white bread but I like to think that what I am eating is healthy 🙂 Kidney beans are full of protein  and I thought it is a good combination with bread, just by adding few vegetables I prepared braised beans. It may look less attractive and more like hospital food but believe me its way tastier and healthier than any junk food or burger.
