Lima Bean Respect Day
National Lima Bean Respect Day is observed on April 20. Lima beans are an excellent source of protein, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Lima beans can increase energy levels by helping to restore more iron. Most of us have tried lima beans as a child and didn’t like them. It’s time to give them a second chance as adults. They are delicious in soups, stews, salads, casseroles, by themselves or mixed with other vegetables.
