It is said that people either LOVE or HATE Lima Beans AKA Butter Beans. I am definitely a lover of Lima Beans. They are a great source of protein, and as my Son and I do not eat animals, this is a great plus for us to incorporate them into our diet. Lima Beans are also high in calcium and manganese which helps to maintain healthy strong bones. They give you energy, are high in iron (another plus if you do not eat meat), are low in calories and almost fat-free. Want more inspiration? Butter beans are high in fiber and bind with the bile acids in ones’s body thus lowering your cholesterol, this happens when the two leave together exiting the body. Lima Beans also help keep you regular by aiding your digestive tract.
