Wednesday is National Eat Your Beans Day and all you have to do to observe is, well, eat your beans!

Legumes date back thousands of years and are a good source of protein.

Need some iron in your diet? Try beans.

How about fiber? Beans have that too.

But, what types should you choose?

Chickpeas and soybeans are a good snack. You could also make a pot of chili or add some to tacos.

The possibilities are as endless as the types of beans.

Just steer clear of the jelly variety; those most definitely don't count as healthy!
