Beans and lentils

Beans and lentils are a fabulous source of vegetarian protein and fiber, two nutrients that help you stay full and satisfied. The protein and fiber also temper the rise in blood sugar that occurs after a meal, which can help stabilize mood. Fiber also helps keep you regular (every ½ cup serving adds another 7 g of fiber to your daily total). Beans and lentils are also a good source of magnesium and potassium, nutrients that work together to lower blood pressure and keep your heart and blood vessels healthy. Added bonus: They’re inexpensive! So stock up on canned, no-salt-added varieties and add them to soups, salads, stews, and more!
