Beans Are Good Food

Peanuts are known as poor human flesh and they have kept the world from the beginning. Dried beans, also known as beans, are packed with nutrients. They are also beneficial because once dried, the beans are almost indestructible; so they have a long shelf life.

There are many types of beans: black beans, big beans, five beans, kidney beans, navy beans, canned beans, green beans, fava (or broad) beans, garbanzo (or chickpeas), cannelloni and black beans . Nutrition speaks to them all the energy of home energy, vitamins and minerals. They are good sources of protein, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Most are also fat-free, and except for canned, low sodium. They are also a very good source of fiber. They also offer a small amount of calcium (about 40-80 milligrams per cup).

How can you include more beans in your diet? Try these:

ß When eating at a salad bar, add some peanut garbanzo or three-peanut salad in your green salad.

ß When making soups and salads at home, add beans.

ß Add extra cans to your chili recipe.

ß Using canned beans makes sodium but if you drain and rinse them, they are an easy way to use peanuts for soup or dip.

ß The next day you make potato salad, add a bottle of navy tissue to the bowl and mix.

ß Beans and Rice is a classic dish and a great accompaniment to Tex-Mex dishes or can be a main course. If you have pork or pork leftovers, you can add liquid pieces to the rice and peanut mixture for added flavor.
