Beans, beans, the magical fruit! The more you eat, the…

HEALTHIER YOU GET!

 

Ha, ha!  Did you actually think I was going to say something else!?!

 

As everybody that knows me knows I’ve been vegetarian for quite some time now, and to those that don’t know me I want to say that I’d not have survived without my beans!  

 

I love, love, love beans!  I love black beans especially in Black Bean Soup, and Northern beans with which my grandma would make a traditional Bulgarian “bob chorba”, and refried beans that go with my shrimp and vegetable fajitas, and the lima beans from the Whole Foods salad bar.  And let’s not forget about the green beans in the green beans casserole dish that complete a perfect Thanksgiving day meal, and black eyed peas that bring luck in the up and coming New Year.  And of course lentils for soup, and chickpeas for falafel, and kidney beans for chili!  In short, I am never bored with beans.

 

Are beans a regular part of your diet? If you’re interested in improving your health and well being, they should be!  It’s no wonder that beans have been a staple in people’s diet from across the world for generations!  Studies have shown that increase in bean intake has lead to lowering of men’s cholesterol by almost 20% and reduction of the risk of heart attack by almost 40%.  Good stuff!!!

 

So eat more beans, people!!!  And for suggestions and my favorite recipes, keep reading this page 🙂
