Beans were commonly not made in my house growing up. They required hours and hours or preparation and pasta was much easier to serve as aside. Now, with the pressure cooker, this time is cut dramatically. It now makes it possible to eat during the week.
Some of the health benefits of eating legumes:
Great sources of protein, sometimes kids just don’t like eating meat, so these become a great alternative. Another reason that kids like eating them are they are easy to eat, if you don’t add a sauce, the kids can eat them all day, just like they would cheerios or goldfish.
They are rich in fiber but low in calories. They are great for a dieter’s diet.
Because they are rich in fiber, they help reduce cholesterol levels.
Help blood sugar levels, great for people with diabetes.
