Black Beans are very high in fiber, folate, protein, and antioxidants, along with numerous other vitamins and minerals. Black beans make a complete protein when paired with brown rice, which is often why they are so commonly included in a vegetarian diet. Other health benefits include digestive tract benefits, blood sugar regulation, cardiovascular health benefits, cancer prevention and nervous system health.  Get healthy and have some today!
