Transcript: The Best Bean
Don’t get cocky though. There are many other magic beans out there. Chickpeas, split peas, lentils, kidney beans, and yellow split peas. This is what the graph looks like. Two of those in that list belong in the same antioxidant-packed class as black and pinto beans, but there are three loser legumes… Now Number 3… are those wonderful dark red kidney beans, but what’s #2?
Four left to choose from. Three of these are relative losers, but one of them is the number two most power-packed antioxidant legume on the planet. Chickpeas, split peas, lentils, or yellow split peas. Anyone sitting want to shout out any advice for our remaining contestants? Who say’s #2 is chickpeas? Who says it’s split peas? Who says lentils? Who says yellow split peas? Let’s see who’s right.
Everyone who said yellow split peas, “peas” sit down. Whoever said green split peas, also wrong. And finally, whoever said lentils you win! Lentils number 2; chickpeas number 7! Chickpeas are still super healthy but nothing compared to these superstars.
