It's National Lima Bean Respect Day!!

Lima beans
Another often maligned vegetable is the lima bean.

Today is National Lima Bean Respect Day, so try to eat some lima beans today. Personally, I love them. They have quite the unique flavor and I'll eat them in anything or just plain.

The National Day Calendar website states "lima beans are a good source of protein, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Lima beans can increase energy levels by helping to restore more iron. 

"Most of us have grown up with the memory of not liking Lima beans as a child and do not give them a second chance as we become adults. They are delicious in soups, stews, salads, casseroles, by themselves or mixed with other vegetables."
