Beans, also known as the “perfect food” can help you fight cancer, lower cholesterol, and prevent heart disease. Beyond their many health benefits, these veggies are delicious. You can take advantage of the nutrients these beans have by eating bean soup, bean salad, or a hummus dip. In honor of National Bean Day, you can also try a variety of beans you’ve never eaten before, such as mungo, cranberry, or adzuki beans. Beans create balance and ground you into the earth.
