Cannelloni beans are the musical fruit…as in music to your ears! You get a high plant protein, high fiber food that keeps you feeling full and satisfied. Many bean (legumes) are known for their role in helping you lose weight. The main reason for this is that they act as things called alpha-amylase inhibitors. These cool little inhibitors stop your body from absorbing carbohydrates to quickly by blocking your enzymes responsible for digestion. That is not all…bean are great cancer fighter too! Cannelloni bean are closely related to the Navy bean. Navy beans have the highest level of antioxidant of any bean. Protecting your body from oxidative stress and cell mutations. We all know a diet high in fiber is good for your bowels which is part of your bodies natural detoxification. Beans are a superfood!

Comfort food is food that makes us feel full, warm and reminds us of a favorite time or place. Bean dip is a comfort food for me...I love it with crackers, veggies and even spread on sprouted grain toast. It's great for family gatherings and dinner appetizers. For me, it just makes a great snack and #cancerhatesit!
