3 Easy Ways to Get More Beans into Your Diet

Beans are one the best sources of protein and fiber, espeically when considering their relatively low fat content and price when compared to other traditional sources of protein. One issue with beans, however, is that they can be hard to incorporate into your diet. They need to be cooked for a long time, and they're not terribly portable. However, it's a great idea to find out how to incorporate these rich sources of fiber and protein into what we eat in order to reduce risk for heart disease. Here are a few creative and easy ways to get more beans into your diet.

  1. Bean Salad: Mix cooked beans (such as black beans, kidney beans, or chickpeas) with diced vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers. Toss with olive oil, lemon juice or vinegar, salt, pepper, and herbs like parsley or cilantro for a refreshing salad.

  2. Bean Soup: Mash cooked chickpeas and blend with Tahini (seasame paste) to quickly make this delicious dip. Raw vegetables like carrots, cucumber, and bell peppers paired with hummus can be a tasty and nutritious snack.
