Dried Beans

Dried beans and other legumes are full of nutrients. They provide fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates as well as necessary minerals and vitamins. Nutritionists (such as Donna Winham, an assistant professor of nutrition at Arizona State University's Polytechnic Campus) recommend that you eat 1/2 cup a day of beans or other legumes.

Pinto Beans

In southeastern United States, pinto beans (as well as milk, cornbread and cabbage) have long been a staple food item for the poor, during winter months, along. Churches in the United States still organize and sponsor 'Pinto Beans Supper', as fundraising programs and social gatherings. This is a testimony to the wholesome nutritional diet that pinto beans offer and their popularity in American culture.
