Beans, and legumes, including peas and lentils, are an excellent source of plant-based protein.
Beans are found in most traditional cultures as a staple food, offering grounding and strengthening properties that enhance endurance. They offer a highly usable, highly absorbable source of calcium for the body. A very inexpensive source of high nutrition, beans can be rich, delicious and satisfying.

Lack of sexual energy is often due to overtaxed adrenal glands and kidneys. Beans are known for strengthening these organs (ever noticed the shape of a bean?) and can help restore vital energy as well as sexual energy.

Beans have a reputation for causing digestive distress, but this is usually because they have been under cooked or improperly prepared. To help reduce gas-forming properties, soak beans overnight prior to cooking, increase cooking time; add spices like bay leaf, oregano or cumin when cooking. Bring more beans into your diet.
