The Nutritious Benefits of Beans

From MealTime.org

Beans are called a 'super food' for good reason.  Everyone knows that they are an excellent source of protein and fiber, but did you know that they are also a good source of thiamin, iron, folate and potassium?

Studies note that beans are also a great source of antioxidants; the darker bean's color, the more antioxidants they have. A recent study released under the National Nutrition and Health Examination Survey concluded that adults and children who regularly eat beans weigh approximately seven pounds less than those who do not.

Since high-fiber diets have been proven to help reduce body weight, it makes sense that fiber-packed, beans help contribute to smaller waistlines.  Here's some recipes!
