Although a plant, legumes are high in protein and fibre without the saturated fat found in animal protein. In addition to keeping you full, beans help lower your cholesterol levels and are good for your heart. Beans contain antioxidants and are loaded with vitamins and minerals. With wheat or rice, they make a complete protein. Try to swap animal protein for plant protein for a healthier you.
