Beans and Oatmeal have WHAT in common?

Pretty much EVERYTHING. Take a look at the nutrition labels below (taken from Old Fashion Quaker Oats and Eden Food Pinto Beans, respectively).

For both, a half cup serving is a little over 100 calories, a few grams of fat, no sodium, around 5 grams of fiber and protein, and about 10% iron!

Crazy! If you enjoy that nice, hearty, filling sensation of oatmeal for breakfast, you can probably can the same energy and satisfaction from a serving of beans as well!

Try this little experiment: find foods similar in nutrition and then switch up your diet! Life is fun when we have variety. Variety is the spice of life!!

Now tell us below in the comments, which foods have you discovered with similar nutrition labels?
