  • ​Although diets like Paleo and Gerson promote some parts of a healthy diet, like consuming lots of multi-coloured vegetables, they don’t allow nutrient-rich legumes such as black beans.
  • Legumes are very inexpensive and a great source of protein! Protein helps your body to heal and build new tissues, muscle, skin and hair.
  • Black beans, like other legumes, contain:
    • Fibre, which helps lower cholesterol, control blood sugar levels, assists with weight loss by helping you feel full, and helps maintain regular bowel movements.
    • B vitamins, which help to give you energy.
    • Minerals like potassium and magnesium, which help regulate your blood pressure.
    • Iron, which your body needs to make blood.
      • Eating plant sources of iron with sources of vitamin C such as lime juice helps your body absorb iron better.
