Butterbeans are a tender, smaller variety of lima beans. I always keep a can of Eden butterbeans at home to throw into soups or stews. They’ve light, flavorful and cute!

I’ve never done a Ten Healthiest Foods list, mostly because I don’t believe in them. Well, I guess I’m a hypocrite now!
Here’s how this is going to work. I’m not going to limit myself to ten. I’m just going to keep writing until I use up my three pages.
