Our family loves beans.
We were actually practically vegan for a good number of years, mostly because we were on a super tight budget and handling raw meat pretty much grossed me out.
I think we've eaten just about every bean variety known to man.
Well, maybe not every one.
Lentils are one of our favorite beans. I love the meaty taste (they make a GREAT substitute for meats if you are looking at cutting your food budget), but they also are full of good nutrition.
