Why should you include adzuki or red beans in your pregnancy diet

The FDA considers beans to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods that are naturally lean and low on saturated fat. To add to that they are also a great source of protein. The American Pregnancy Association recommends pregnant women to have 75-100grams of protein daily. Proteins act as the building blocks of your body and this applies to your unborn baby as well. Thus, pregnant women need to adequately supplement their diet with proteins to boost the overall grwoth and development of their baby. A single serving of cooked adzuki beans (230 grams) contains 17.3 grams of protein. It is also rich in fibre and other nutrients like folate, magnesium, and phosphorus. Adzuki beans are also known to reduce itchiness, redness, and stretch marks. You should, therefore, include adzuki or red beans in your pregnancy diet.
