Health Tip: Enjoy Beans

Here are potential benefits

(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.
