10 Delicious Ways to Eat More Beans

Beans aren’t just good for your body—they’re also good for your budget. Lentils and other legumes (including all bean varieties, like black beans, chickpeas, and soybeans) offer similar health benefits. How much do you need? Aim for ¾ cup per day of the superfood, which is a great source of lean protein, high-quality carbs and soluble fiber, a triple threat that can help stabilize blood sugar and keep you feeling full and satisfied. An added bonus: Beans and lentils are inexpensive and incredibly versatile. With so many different types to choose from, it’s easy to get your fix every day.
