Bean Power

Great things often come in small packages.  That's certainly the case with dried beans.  Each tiny bean is packed full of nutirion, yet it's low in calories & fat!  Just 1 cup of cooked beans contains almost 1/3 of your recommended dietary allowance of protein and iron.  And beans go a long way toward helping you eat the 20-35 grams of dietary fiber the national cancer institute advises you to get everyday.

Beans can be eaten alone or use them to replace meat in casseroles, salads and soups.  And what about that hot steaming bowl of chili??  There's no end to the ways you can boost your diet with Bean Power
