Scientific studies have shown that legumes can lower blood sugar levels and prevent diabetes. Anyone who consumes 29 g of legumes (e.g. lentils, chickpeas, dried beans and fresh peas) daily has a 35 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes than people who consume a low 13 g per day the clinical journal "Clinical Nutrition". One possible explanation is that legumes have a low glycemic index. This means that blood sugar levels rise more slowly after eating. In addition, legumes are rich in fiber, B vitamins and valuable minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. (Image: piyaset / fotolia.com)
