Here are potential benefits
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Beans are easy to prepare, inexpensive and packed with nutrients.
The American Heart Association explains:
- Beans are rich in fiber and minerals, but don't contain the saturated fats found in animal products.
- Eating beans may help lower cholesterol, and help you feel more full and stay full longer.
- Watch for salt added in canned beans. Buy "no salt added" varieties or drain them before eating.
- Eat beans on toast, with rice, in soups or salads, or in a whole-grain tortilla.
