Published October 1, 2023 We can’t get enough of beans. These tiny powerhouses are packed with fiber, making them your digestive system’s best friend. Plus, they’re a solid source of plant-based protein, and we’ll take any opportunity to sneak in extra protein! They’re low in fat, high in nutrients, and have an incredible ability to support cardiovascular health. We love beans so much that we had the “Bean Queen” herself, biochemist & nutritionist Karen Hurd, on the pod to discuss exactly *how* the soluble fiber in beans removes toxins from the body (including where, why, and how your body releases the bile they’re contained within). Sarah Gabrielle, soon to be Naturopath and creator behind @bysarahgabrielle, curated this delicious White Bean Salad as the perfect side dish or snack to get a daily dose of beans in your diet. This is the perfect recipe to batch prep and have on hand for the week! You can find more fiber-rich and protein-packed recipes from Sarah here.
