Beans beans good for the heart, be smart and fill your cart with beans~! One cup of cooked beans provides about 12 grams of fiber. Fiber is good for our digestion, and will help you feel fuller longer and fill up more quickly. Beans are an excellent food choice for anytime of the day. I buy beans at Trader Joe’s for $1.19 a can but Aldi now sells the same can of bean’s for .79! That’s .40 per can savings plus 5 additional ounces of beans!
