An excellent food from a nutritional and health perspective. Tofu is considered to be a “complete food” because it contains all essential amino acids for protein synthesis.
Tofu is known to be high in calcium. In fact, a 4oz serving of tofu contains about as much calcium as a full 8oz glass of cow’s milk.
It contains no saturated fat. Saturated fat is one of the worst kinds of fat and can contribute to heart disease, hypertension, and other diseases.
Contains a good amount of iron, copper, and manganese. These nutrients work to help the body absorb each other and all three are essential for a healthy diet but can also help boost energy.
Black beans are versatile, cholesterol free, high in fibre, rich in protein & low in fat.
Black beans are rich in a certain mineral you may not be familiar with but should be…Molybdenum. This mineral’s actions are mainly in the production of enzymes, proteins that trigger chemical reactions in the body. These enzymes are involved in uric acid formation, transportation of iron, carbohydrate metabolism and sulphite detoxification. This essential mineral is a trace element mainly found in the liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, bones and skin, but it exists in all body tissues.
Kidney beans are an excellent plant-based source of protein. They’re also rich in various minerals, vitamins, fibers, antioxidants, and other unique plant compounds.
High In Essential Minerals: kidney beans are high in blood building iron, phosphorous - which plays a crucial role in healthy bones and teeth - and vitamin K that helps protect the nervous system from free radical damage.
The carbs present in kidney beans are the good kinds, also known as the 'slow-release carbohydrate'. These carbs delay the digestion, which aids slow release of sugars in the blood stream.
