Baked beans are one of the few indulgent snacks out there that are low in fat. While getting a small amount of fat is important in any healthy diet, beans are both filling and free of both trans and saturated fats.
Baked beans might have some additional fats, but they’re mostly a great way to get protein without animal fats. When you chow down on beans, you’re filling your stomach up with a healthy meal that also keeps you feeling satisfied longer. That’s partially because beans contain a lot of soluble fiber, which expands with the water in your stomach. That leaves you feeling full for longer, and also makes sure that the good stuff makes it out of your stomach and into your bloodstream.
