EAT DARK RED KIDNEY BEANS!
Don't be fooled by their small size, beans pack a huge nutritional punch. They are loaded with figure-friendly protein, filling fiber, energizing B vitamins and heart-healthy antioxidants. Go for the dark red kidney beans, as this variety takes the budget super-food prize because they have one of the highest antioxidant counts of all beans and cost the least, a mere buck a can. Add kidney beans to your favorite chili recipe or mash them with some chicken broth, sautéed onion and garlic for a creamy dip. Toss them in your salad, but just be sure to give the canned beans a quick rinse to get rid of the excess sodium. The culinary bean possibilities are endless…so eat up!
