Beans could be the answer to your diet nightmares

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

You've decided to start eating healthier, and you want to make sure that every meal is precisely balanced. However, if you have a tight budget, you can run into trouble. The majority of individuals consume too many carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for one simple reason: most protein sources are pricey. Two of the best sources of protein are meat and cheese, but they are also two of the most expensive foods you can purchase.

So what's the solution if you want to eat a balanced diet on a budget? You could be surprised, though. Beans are what you require.

Beans are a low-cost crop that are easily accessible in large tins for not much money at all. Despite this, they are a great source of protein and have a delicious flavor. There is also no lack of variety; you can find baked beans, kidney beans, and butter beans all lined up for you in the same department. If you're unsure of what to do with them, look for vegetarian dishes, which frequently feature a lot of beans.

Even better, you can combine a few different kinds of beans to make a bean salad with a sauce. This is a straightforward side dish but a simple way to increase the protein in your dinner. As long as you don't overdo the pasta, dishes like rice with bean curry or pasta with a dairy-based sauce including beans are examples of well balanced meals.

Naturally, I don't advise you to eat only beans for protein all the time because you'll soon become tired of them. However, you can make significant financial savings without having your meal's nutritional balance suffer if you can occasionally substitute beans for cheese or beef.
