Bean Beans the more you eat, the Healthier you are!!
I have always been a fan of beans, do I eat them everyday, or even every week? no, But I think I am going to start! This little legume packs a big, big punch. Beans are lowfat, high in fiber, and provide a high quality magnesium, iron and folate.
The beans have twice as much iron as beef. Maintaining a high level of iron, ensures a stable supply of hemoglobin,and this carries energizing oxygen to every cell of the body.
Beans are also loaded with thiamine which is essential for high mental performance.
Because they are high in fiber, they help cut cholesteral.
Our recipe this week includes them in a pasta dish, but they would be great baked with chicken or fish, in a vegetbale soup, or even on a green salad.
