National Eat Your Beans Day – July 3

NATIONAL EAT YOUR BEANS DAY

National Eat Your Beans Day is a “live healthy” holiday celebrated every year on July 3.  This day celebrates the bean vegetable in all sizes, shapes and colors.  Beans (legumes) are one of the longest cultivated plants dating back to the early seventh millennium BCE.

Now, just as throughout the Old and New World history, beans are an important source of protein.  A very healthy choice for any meal or snack, they are also an excellent source of fiber, are low in fat and are high in complex carbohydrates, folate and iron.

  • There are approximately 40,000 bean varieties in the world.
  • Only a fraction of these varieties are mass-produced for regular consumption.
