Our expert says:
One of the SA Food-Based Dietary Guidelines is "Eat legumes regularly". Legumes include dry canned or cooked beans, peas, lentils and soya. Legumes like baked beans are rich in protective nutrients such as B vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and dietary fibre. In contrast to animal sources of protein, legumes have low total fat and saturated fat contents and contain no cholesterol. It is, therefore, a good idea to have a plant protein meal at least every second day.
