National Bean Day and Jan. 6 (Health News)
Out of all the random made-up holidays, one of the most delightful and tasty is National Bean Day, which happens every Jan 6. Beans are one of the healthiest foods, high in protein, fiber, and lots of other nutrients and amino acids. They are especially a key source of protein for vegetarians.
Beans are also one of the most affordable health food options, costing only cents for a bag of beans to make from scratch, with some brown rice to form the basic healthy meal many can use to improve their diet and their budget.
Not to mention all of the joy that comes from the coffee bean! Everyone's favorite addiction, at least in my household, for tasty and healthy recipes and lots more info on beans, see the link to food.com below.
