NATIONAL EAT YOUR BEANS DAY – July 3

National Eat Your Beans Day July 3

NATIONAL EAT YOUR BEANS DAY

National Eat Your Beans Day is a “live healthy” holiday observed every year on July 3.  This day celebrates the bean vegetable in all sizes, shapes and colors.  Beans (legumes) are one of the longest-cultivated plants dating back to the early seventh millennium BCE.

Now, just as throughout the Old and New World history, beans are a major source of protein.  A very healthy choice for any meal or snack, they are also an excellent source of fiber,  low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates, folate and iron.

  • There are approximately 40,000 bean varieties in the world.
  • Only a fraction of these varieties are mass-produced for regular consumption.

HOW TO OBSERVE

To celebrate, head over to our National Day Recipes page for many recipes to choose from or enjoy a fava bean dip with goat cheese and garlic dip or black bean chili recipe.  Use #NationalEatYourBeansDay to share on social media.
