During the May holidays, especially those spent outside the city, many people get tired of heavy meat dishes cooked on the grill or grill. If you decide to “take a break” from meat, but do not want to switch exclusively to vegetables and herbs, try cooking legumes for dinner. We suggest starting with beans - along with a hearty dish, you will receive an impressive set of nutrients.

So, beans contain fluorine, iron, molybdenum, iodine, manganese, copper, zinc, cobalt, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, as well as vitamin C, which is more in it than in peaches, plums and apricots, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, E, K, PP and amino acids important for the body. But this is not all the pluses - beans are superior in nutritional value to many types of meat and contain up to 25 grams of protein, which, by the way, is absorbed by our body by 70-80%.
