Joan K. shares her Recipe "This is such an easy recipe to put together. I soak the beans overnight, drain them in the morning and finish the rest of the cooking just in time for lunch. Eating my main meal of the day at lunch worked better for me I just felt more like eating then."

Brimming with beans--navy beans, that is--this recipe is rich in fiber. Typically Americans don't eat enough fiber. Experts recommend we eat 25 to 30 grams of fiber daily for good health and to prevent constipation.
