Why I Eat Black Beans, and the Benefits of Eating Beans.

     Over the last few months I have really gotten into eating beans.  At first I never was really into black beans and more into pinto, but for some reason that changed, tustve just gotten a different taste preference I guess.  But now I love black beans and the best part I can buy them very cheap even if they are organic!  "Just how cheap can you buy a can of organic beans?" you may be asking.  Well for my location at least I get them for 80 cents a can, which I believe is a steal!  Less than a dollar for a whole meal of part of a meal depending on how hungry you are is outrageous.
The main reason I started to eat beans was because of the price.  They were, like I said very cheap and could fill me up pretty easily.  I came to a point in my life where I have to start saving money and spending less, so since then I have been finding the best healthy foods for cheap I can buy, and beans happens to be one of those, and one I find could help anyone reading this if they are tight on money.  I may make more blogs on cheap foods that are still healthy, but less talk about that lets get into some benefits beside it being a cheap food.
Benefits of eating black beansProtien
     Black beans are packed with protein.  Each can has about 24 grams of protein and can easily be used as a meal or side dish as I stated above.  This is excellent if you are looking to build muscle and eat healthy foods.  
Health benefits
     Although Black beans have many health benefits I am only going to talk about a couple here in this blog.  Do you have any heart problems? Well it just so happens black beans help fight heart disease!  They are high in soluble fiber, which helps balance out cholesterol levels.  Mother nature has all the solutions, but thats only the first.  Our heart is one of our most prized possessions, and we must take very good care of it, black beans happen to be a very amazing, tasty, and healthy way to do so.
     Not only does it help protect our hearts but also helps our bodies protect against cancer because of their high levels of antioxidants.  These antioxidants found in back beans help fight off and protect against free radical damage.  The is very beneficial to many of us in the U.S., the diets most of us are eating is very deadly to our health.  The food we eat can either be making us live or slowly killing us.  I used to be that way, eating junk food continually everyday not knowing the effects they had on me.  Its a horrible trap to fall in to, and I would love for this post to change someones life into eating a more healthy diet and finding fun ways to eat healthy food, black beans are just a start to a healthy life, but anyway enough talking about the bad of junk food, lets jump back into another benefit of black beans! 
     Choosing this last one was hard because there are many to name but I think that this benefit would help you guys the most.  Black beans are a healthy carb.  What does this mean for you?  If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic it can aid in fighting against your resistance of insulin, because the starches are made of a natural sugar, glucose, which the body can use easily for energy.  Also along with the energy use in the body, you won't find a sugar high then crash, but instead a good amount of energy without the nasty tiring crash, like you would from bread!
