Lots of Fiber
Beans are a great source of fiber. That’s important because most Americans don’t get the recommended 25 to 38 grams each day.
Fiber helps keep you regular and seems to protect against heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and digestive illness.
Navy beans have about 19 grams of fiber per cup. Add some smoked turkey, kale, onions, and carrots, for a hearty soup.
