Why use beans? For those just starting to incorporate high fiber foods into a normal "fast food" diet, beans are essential because they slow down the transit time of whole grains and seeds. In plain terms, keep you from or stop you from, having diahrrea! Grains contain insoluble fibers that "go right through you" and beans contain soluble fibers that bind with other foods to keep foods in the body long enough for nutrients to be utilized. Yeast and Quick Breads, Cakes, Cookies, Crackers, Muffins, and Chips are more nutritious when bean flours are added. You'll also find great Pancakes, Waffles, and Yeast Breads for the bread machine.
Country Beans contains nearly 400 fast, easy high fiber bean recipes for every meal of the day. This book is guaranteed to change the way you use beans! Order today so you can start sneaking beans into everything you cook! By Rita Bingham. Paperback, 195 pages.
