Beans are relatively inexpensive, widely available, and can easily be added to most any dish.
On top of that, beans are a nutritional powerhouse containing ample amounts of fiber and protein. There are many varieties including black, pinto and kidney that can be used in soups, chili, as side dishes, or combined with other ingredients such as brown rice for simple, tasty and healthy meals.
When most people think about protein they consider animal sources such as beef, chicken and fish. These are fine, but it also makes sense to get your protein from a variety of sources, including plant-based protein.
And most of us take in less fiber than we should to maximize health. An easy way to help remedy that situation is eating beans more often.
Though small in size beans bring a lot to your plate - good taste and health benefits - and should probably play a bigger role in your diet.
Enjoy, and be well.
