Soybeans in pods (edamame) can be bought frozen. Just boil the pods in 3 mins, add a little salt, and you have a tasty snack. Out of the pods are delicious too.
Garbanzo, black, red kidney, navy, pinto and lima beans are yummy too. Have a variety.
3 bean salad is tasty - add vinegar, oil, a little sugar, diced onions and chopped peppers.
Eat beans at least 3X/week. Add corn and peas for tasty nutritious vegetables.
