Thanks for the suggestions. The "aside from beans and rice" wasn't because those things aren't (or can't be) healthy, but because I made the black bean chicken on Saturday -- and since there are just two of us, we've eaten beans and rice for a LOT of meals (still have several containers of leftovers!)! Looking for ideas that are different so that we aren't eating the same thing all the time.
Just found the refried beans Sparks recipe: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta il.asp?recipe=7753 May have to try it since it is lower cal and pinto rather than black bean (we've eaten black beans several times this week in the black bean chicken recipe).

Beans a rice is good for your, use brown rice, and give yourself more beans then rice :) But other than that, i like a side salad, or corn.
