What I learned about Beans ? Beans are the only food in the food pyramid to fit into two categories on the USDA Food Guide Pyramid . Legumes are considered both a vegetable and a Protein. During hard times , the bean was used as a meat substitute . During the Great Depression in the United States beans were used as a good source of protein when meat supply was low. They were also used during World War II as a food staple , and after the war bean production soared.The U.S Dry Bean council states that eating beans regularly can promote a Healthy Heart , and the Phytochemicals in Beans may reduce the risk of certain Cancers . Beans have a low calorie count , but tout high fiber content . They can help lower cholesterol and are high in antioxidants , Protein , B vitamins , Iron , Magnesium , Potassium , Copper and zinc , thus making them a must have addition to any household pantry .
Beans have Low GI which in turn assists in Blood sugar management for those with Diabetes. They offer a good source of energy and the high fiber content can even contribute to a slimmer waistline . Source – HL
