Black Beans

Raquel 0 Comments

Black beans are native to the Americas and date back at least 7,000 years when they were a staple food in the diets of Central and South Americans. How do pinto and black beans stack up when it comes to nutrition per serving. Both offer a lot of protein and fiber in a package with a similar number of calories. However, black beans contain slightly less carbs and a lower fat content than pinto beans, attributed mainly to their high starch content but they are slightly lower in thiamine and B6 than the pintos. Black beans are essentially a fat free food. Enjoy this ancient staple in your favorite dish or as a dip to sustain you and take a trip back in time. Add onion, chiles, cilantro and garlic, don’t limit your imagination.
