Who Should Be Eating Beans?

 

I recommend people eat some beans every day.

Not only do they protect against colon cancer,

they stabilize blood sugar and help you feel full.

There are a variety of beans to choose from:

chickpeas, black-eyed peas, black beans, lima beans,

pinto beans, lentils, red kidney beans, cannellini beans and many more.

They can be flavored and spiced in lots of interesting ways.

Add beans to soups, salads, dips, burgers and even spaghetti sauce.

If you use bean from a can, which is fine, please make sure that the beans

are always washed and drained, and cooked before using.

The discard is not good to consume.

Also, the only bean safe for children under the age of 12 (approximately),

are lentils.  All other beans need to be washed, and mashed and cooked

before giving to children.  Adding tomatoes to the beans while they cook,

is always best, it breaks down the outer coating of a bean which is too rough

on their intestinal tracts.

Remember; having gas is not a normal, natural thing to have.  If you experience

gas after consuming beans, your body is telling you that you are having a hard

time digesting them.  Try preparing and eating them as the instructions for

children says.
