The truth is beans make you feel better and with a healthy diet combining the right fruits, veggies and lean proteins... they don't have to make you fart! Beans are a superfood you should add to your diet.
As a healthy lifestyle and fitness expert, I am always looking for ways to improve my diet. I love to add nutrient rich foods to recipes to really give them a boost of energy and taste. Black beans are a great one to think about. You can add them to salads, lasagna, soups or even sprinkle over a sandwich.
Check this out:
Black beans have 11 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein in a 1/2 cup serving and only 120 calories... Four ounces is equal to a half cup if you are weighing or checking labels. Don’t forget to rinse them first or make them yourself by boiling water and re-hydrating those dried beans for cost savings. If you make the mistake refried beans as an alternative, it’s not that bad! They only weigh in at 210 calories for a 1/2 cup and have almost 13 grams of fiber and about 12 grams of protein.
