The musical fruit! The more you eat the more…protein you will have in your diet. A serving of cooked beans has 7-10 grams of protein per half cup, so a bowl of bean soup or chili packs quite the protein punch! If you’re worried about beans’ more…er…“musical” qualities, rinsing the beans before cooking can make a big difference. You might also want to add beans to your diet slowly, if you don’t get a lot of fiber right now.
