“Mung beans are one of the most cherished foods in ayurveda, a wholistic system of medicine from India. Mung beans are very nourishing, while being relatively easy to digest. People who are recuperating from illnesses are often recommended a combination of rice and mung beans, because they are very nutritious but not hard to digest. Together with rice, mung beans form a complete protein. Combine with coconut milk, a traditional ingredient used with mung beans, and cocoa, you have a fluffy pudding that tastes like a Mounds bar but packs a real protein punch. Here's a delicious way to get more protein in your diet!”
