Good Things Come in Threes

Aside from serving as a crunchy snack, legumes, nuts and seeds offer healthy and nutritious benefits. Legumes have high protein content, and nuts and seeds offer a good source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids.

You might be wondering how you can consume four to five servings of legumes, nuts or seeds weekly. It is easy! A serving of beans (legumes) is just ½ cup, and a serving of nuts equals 1-ounce or one small handful.

Try some of these easy strategies:

  • Snack on a handful of almonds.
  • Sprinkle toasted walnuts onto your salad.
  • Snack on fresh or roasted edamame.
  • Pan-sear chickpeas for a crunchy snack.
  • Opt for a spicy black bean burger or pinto burger.
  • Add black beans to your favorite marinara sauce or whole-wheat pasta dish.
