The World Of Beans
Protein for a crowded planet. We’ll dive into the real and humble world of beans, in all their glory.
So, let’s review the big picture. We’ve got an environmentally-strapped planet with a huge population to feed. We’ve got a bum economy where American families are needing to pinch pennies. And we’ve got a health crisis of weight and heart issues. The answer: beans.
They take less land to grow than meat – they’re lighter on the Earth. They’re rich in protein but sure cheaper than beef and chicken. And they’re healthy as can be. This may be the great moment of the bean. We’re going to help you get there.
This hour, On Point: the humble, timely, fine and glorious world of beans.
