Show Beans some Love Today

Happy National Bean Day

Beans are often overlooked as a healthy choice. Did you know that beans are a good source of protein, fiber, and folate? They are also cheap and can be added to many meals and snacks. Some of my favorite beans are garbanzo beans, soy beans, and black beans! All of which can be added to a simple salad to increase it's nutrient power.

Oh, and it's National Short Bread Day so have a look at these recipes!


  1. Thanks for the shout-out, we loved that bean soup with spinach!

  2. I definitely need to give beans some more love--we don't eat them at lot, and they're often overlooked around here for the likes of broccoli, asparagus, or carrots as a side item. But I love bean salads, falafel, and bean soup, so I need to start cooking that more! :)

    1. People don't know how what beans can do for you every now and then!

  3. I don't typically like beans but that garbanzo bean salad looks amazing!! Thanks for posting!
