Why Eat Kidney Beans?

Did you know that kidney beans are one of the only foods that are included in two - yes, two - food groups? Their high-protein, mineral-rich attributes make them an excellent alternative to meats and poultry, as well as providing vitamins and fiber found in vegetables.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Pyramid, beans can add variety to your diet - not only in terms of taste, but from a nutritional standpoint. Beans are an excellent source of key vitamins and minerals to help keep your body healthy and reduce the risk of heart disease.
