Healthy Indian Vegetarian Cooking
By Mani Chari

A new research study done over 19 years shows that eating beans and other legumes several times a week reduces the risk of heart disease. This was presented at the American Heart Association's 40th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention. Beans and other legumes are high in protein and low in fat. In addition beans are abundant in fiber and have been proven to lower cholesterol which benefits the heart.
