Libby’s Black Beans and Red Beans

Libby's red beansDo red beans and black beans make a good dinner menu? Absolutely! Black beans can serve as a main dish or side dish while red beans can serve as a great sweet dessert. In the past, we used to soak black beans and red beans overnight and cooked them for hours to soften up. This process takes forever. Thank goodness though there’s Libby’s to offer us ready to eat black beans and red beans out of the can, for a few minutes of cooking, presto, a delicious and nutritious meal.

 I learned years ago that black beans and red beans are rich in protein and a good way to increase muscle mass.  With good exercise and a steady diet of these beans, bulking up biceps, pectorals and triceps are easy.
