I am always looking for different ways to incorporate protein rich food in my menu planning and a great way to accomplish this is by adding bean dishes. In our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®, we include some traditional recipes like Chili, Hamburger Bean Hotdish (casserole for those of you in other parts of the country) and Grandma’s Baked Beans (now I am sidetracked thinking about how my grandma always brought her famous baked beans to every family gathering).
These bean dishes include all different types of dried beans: navy beans, lima beans, kidney beans and black beans. By including beans in your diet, you will add a food high in fiber that is slow to digest, making you feel full longer.
This Bean Dip is a great appetizer to take to a party. People love it!
