Re: Nutrition suggestions needed-changing my eating habits

I have been reading nutrition books for awhile and most seem to agree that beans should be a diet staple. I am now trying out various bean recipes. Beans are low on the glycemic index, high in fiber, high in protein. I did not eat beans growing up so there has been quite a learning curve for me, learning how to cook them, getting used to the taste, but They do seem to be a good addition. You can have them as a side dish, or add to your salads. Today I am going to try making baked beans. Never did this before so will see how it turns out.
