Mexican Posole

An authentic Mexican thick soup loaded with colorful vegetables and protein packed beans. Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Its high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. Kidney beans can increase energy by helping to replenish iron stores, particularly for menstruating women, who are more at risk for iron deficiency. Tomatoes and lemon being rich in vitamin C, increases the absorption of iron from beans and vegetables.
