  • SPILLING THE BEANS, PROTEIN TOTALS MAY SURPRISE YOU.

    Posted on February 2nd, 2011 Pam No comments

    Think meat has the most protein?

    1 cup of milk has about 8 grams of protein.
    1 cup of beans has about 16 grams of protein.
    3 ounces of meat has about 21 grams of protein.
    10 ounces of yogurt has about 11 grams of protein.

    The total protein in beans are higher than most people think. Beans also have more fiber than any other vegetable. Beans are high in antioxidants, satisfy hunger longer and are cheaper than most food.

    A 25 pound bag of pinto beans is about $12. Using one pound of beans every two weeks, a 25 pound bag would feed a family of five for about one year.

    Here are a few types of beans: kidney, pinto, green, soy, black eyed, broad, butter, garbanzo, lima, navy, edamane, black, fava, snake bean, wax bean, rice bean, french horticurtural, chick peas, cow peas and lentils just to name a few.

    Also there are lots of different types of beans available now, some sources say there are over 10,000 varieties. Try growing a different type this year.
