Tip of the Day

Beans, Beans, Beans

What do black beans, pinto beans and kidney beans have in common? They're all good for you. USDA's MyPlate recommends that half of our plate be filled with fruits or vegetables. Beans are the perfect choice because they are high in fiber, which keeps you full longer, and are loaded with protein. Beans are also versatile and can add flavor to any recipe.

Try this recipe for a delicious mashed potato substitute, White Bean Mash:

Rinse and drain two cans of white beans. Cook beans with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and your favorite seasonings. Pour mixture into a blender and blend until mashed potato consistency.

For other ideas on how to enjoy more fruits and vegetables, check out our Eat Right Nutrition Tips and consult a registered dietitian in your area for a personalized eating plan.
