These tiny little beans are packed with so many essentials like potassium, folate, magnesium, and B6. Mung beans are also high in fiber and protein which keeps you fuller for longer. They are in the bean family but don’t cause gas like many other beans and are very easy to digest when cooked.
Mung beans may be new to the American diet but they have been a part of the traditional Ayurvedic diet in India for centuries.
All of this awesomeness makes mung beans a powerful tool in combating inflammatory diseases like cancer, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
Mung beans can be added to soups, kitchari (a traditional Ayurvedic dish), hummus, salads, stir- fries, and noodle dishes.
