March: 

“A cup of beans every day may add years to your life.  They’re cheap, they provide way more protein dollar-for-dollar than meat does, they have complex carbohydrates, and they’re full of fiber.  Plus, beans help the good bacteria in your gut flourish, helping you lose weight and lowering inflammation that causes disease.”
