100g = 99 calo­ries, 8g fi­bre, 7g pro­tein, 0.13g sat­u­rated fat THE BEN­E­FITS An ex­cel­lent source of fi­bre and fo­late, pinto beans are also a good source of en­er­gy­boost­ing B vi­ta­mins and iron. One study pub­lished in the Amer­i­can

Jour­nal Of Clin­i­cal Nutri­tion found that pinto beans con­tain pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants called polyphe­nols, which can help to pre­vent cer­tain can­cers, in­clud­ing breast. An­other study found that half a cup a day can help lower choles­terol lev­els.

HOW TO EAT THEM Cook up a Mid­dle East­ern or Mex­i­can storm of bur­ri­tos, tacos, sal­ads and soups.
