Magical Beans, Tuesday, Jan.15th 2:00-4:00pm

Beans are magical because they fit under not one, but two food groups. They can be found under the vegetable and meat groups because they are so packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Research shows that eating just a half cup several times a week, along with a balanced diet, can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Check out the health benefits, tips for including more beans in your diet, and popular recipes at the Madison County Extension Center, 230 Duncannon Lane. The class is free and open to the public, call 623-4072 to register so Continue reading Magical Beans
