Legumes

Legumes are the edible seeds of plants. They provide a good source of protein, thiamine, folic acid, vitamin E, and fiber. The insoluble fiber in legumes helps to lower blood cholesterol. Examples of legumes are: dried beans, peas, and seeds (including navy, broad, butter, northern, pinto, red, and black beans, as well as chick peas, soybeans, and peanuts).
