Beans Have It All


Do you like eating beans? Well good for you. According to the article I read, not only do beans contain vegetable protein and fiber, but they also reduce the amount of artery-clogging fat in your blood. Participants in a study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, who ate half a cup of cooked pinto beans every day for 12 weeks had a decrease in total LDL (bad) cholesterol. The researchers believe the antioxidants in beans (polyphenols) might help lower blood lipids. Choose red kidney beans for the biggest antioxidant boost. Add them for salads and soups. They are not just for chili. So everyone keep eating your beans. To those who doesn't give it a try you might like them.

Wow, this is a very informative post. I never like beans so much but because of this article I will eat more of them. Are white beans also good like red beans, you know like the white beans we have in the Philippines that we make into desserts or candies? Thanks for the informative post. God bless you always.
