Beans, Beans, Beans

Are beans as good as blueberries? Cynthia Sass of WebMD seems to think so.

* Bean Bible

Beans have high levels of fiber, protein, and vitamins. They are tasty and can be used in many dishes for every meal. They are not fattening, but they are filling so you don't overeat and still feel satisfied. They are simple to prepare and economical to boot.

While espousing bean benefits as "The Perfect Food," Cynthia shows specific nutrients of several different types of beans.

She makes a good case. I do include beans in my menus and recipes, but I'm not ready to give up my blueberries!

Both good. Grapenuts. Fruit or nut?
