Easy Butter Bean Salad
Beans have been shown to be an important longevity food in cultures where people live into their senior years in good health. They contain protein, antioxidants, soluble fibres which act as prebiotics for beneficial gut bacteria as well as key micronutrients like magnesium. This can be eaten as a side dish or makes a meal in itself.
