  • One cup of cooked bulgur is packed with more than 8 grams of fibre. Compare that to brown rice which has about 4 grams of fibre. Fibre is important for helping you control your weight. Being a healthy weight can prevent some cancers and for many types of cancer, lower the risk of it coming back.
  • Beans help lower cholesterol and control blood sugar levels. They play a powerful role in preventing and managing type 2 diabetes.
  • One cup of white kidney beans provides 25% of the iron most people need in a day. Your body absorbs the iron better when you combine it with foods rich in vitamin C, such as the tomatoes in this recipe.
