Red Kidney Beans
Legumes such as red beans are recommended several times a week due to their high fiber content.
Red beans are an excellent source of both types of dietary fiber – soluble and insoluble. Just one cup of these beans provides almost half of our daily fiber needs.
Soluble fiber lowers cholesterol and maintains blood sugar levels, while insoluble fiber protects our digestive tract and helps prevent diverticular disease.
Fiber can also help maintain body weight because it increases our feeling of fullness.
