Not only do Rice & Beans have a long history together, they also have long been a winning food combination. Rice is a starchy carbohydrate and provides vitamins and minerals, such as B vitamins and iron. The beans are a low-glycemic-index food, which makes a person feel full, so in-turn they eat less of other things. Beans are also considered to be a superfood ~ they are chock full of fiber, folate, iron, manganese magnesium, and potassium; and they are cholesterol- and fat-free. Beans are also high in vitamins A and C. Sounds perfect, right? Well it almost is. However, beans are not a “complete protein” because they lack some essential amino acids. Most beans are low in methionine and high in lysine, while rice is low in lysine and high in methionine. Combining rice with beans for your meal, in the right balance, will give you a complete protein for a plant-based diet.
