Attention, ladies! 5 foods you should be eating


Beans don’t always get the attention (or love) they deserve. They’re the punchline of a song about gastrointestinal health…when we should be tooting their horn for the many health benefits they deliver. For instance, they are a source of plant-based protein and fiber, a dynamic duo that can help steady blood sugars. The fiber also helps promote regularity and improve digestive health (OK, there’s some truth to that catchy little jingle, haha), in addition to reducing cholesterol. And plant-based protein has been linked to a reduced risk of illnesses, like heart disease and dementia. Plus, they contain magnesium, a mineral that helps regulate muscle, nerve and heart function and help reduce migraines. Toss beans into this Skillet Franks and Beans masterpiece, use them in Tacos or Chili, or in this delish 7-layer dip. Bean there, loved that!
