Lima beans. They are a nutritional treasure as they are rich in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, fiber and protein (100g provide the body with 7g of protein, the same amount that we get from 30g of chicken or fish). Thus, frequent and systematic consumption of beans can contribute significantly to bone and tooth health, regulate blood pressure and lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. At the same time, it is low in fat and salt. Thanks to their high content of soluble fiber, they can help both in the fight against constipation and in the control of body weight. And this is because consuming them creates a strong feeling of fullness, as a result of which we feel full for more time. Also, their caloric value is relatively low since 1 cup of cooked giants provide about 260 calories.
