If you’re looking for a way to stretch your budget and improve your family’s nutrition, look no further. Consider adding more beans to your menu. They’re convenient, versatile, and lend themselves to many tasty dishes. Beans are a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Invite kids into the kitchen to help you make bean dip to accompany baked chips or vegetables. Replace some of the fat in baked goods such as brownies with mashed black beans. Beans can be added to casseroles or soups to add flavor, texture, and more nutrients.
