A few years ago when wanting to add more fiber and protein to my diet, I came across the humble bean. Packed with nutrients, they adds tons of nutrition to a meal, and are quite satisfying when well seasoned or paired with complimentary foods. When my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, we learned that complex carbohydrates in beans help stabilize blood sugar because they take longer to digest. Now we eat beans at least 3-5 times a week!
