Benefits Of Black Beans

The Only Black Beans And Rice Recipe You Need

Black beans are high in protein, so they are an especially good choice for vegetarians and others with diets low in protein. Even people who eat meat can benefit from the protein in black beans. Unlike animal products, black beans contain only trace amounts of saturated fat and no cholesterol. Black beans and rice are ideal because when they are paired, they provide all of the essential amino acids that you need. These amino acids are used to repair and replace the amino acids in your organs as they are broken down over time.

Rice and black beans are not only healthy when eaten together, but they are inexpensive and delicious. Individually, rice and black beans are incomplete proteins. Together, however, they complement each other and create a complete protein. As such, they are a good replacement for meat at some meals. Rice and beans also contain vitamins, minerals and fiber.
