Beans are more than a musical fruit (sorry, I couldn't resist) they are little nutritional powerhouses with their high fiber and antioxidant content. That being the case, they're a good addition to any meal. One tip is to be sure to always buy low sodium beans whenever possible. Low sodium beans are usually comparable in price to regular sodium beans, but they have about 30-60% less sodium than the non low sodium beans. What's more? Rinsing beans in a colander under cold water will get rid of some sodium too.
