Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Eat Your Beans Day

National Eat Your Beans Day is observed in the US on July 3rd. 

This day not only celebrates the various kinds of beans but also creates awareness about the importance of beans in our daily diet. The history of the day and the founder is not known.

The history of beans as a food source dates back about six thousand years when beans were first cultivated by ancient human civilizations. This makes beans one of the oldest cultivated plants. The Egyptians seem to have a special interest in beans where they were left as the food for the departed and their souls in the afterlife.

When the first colonists arrived at the New World, Native Americans taught them to grow beans with corn so the bean plants can climb the cornstalks.

Although there are about 4,000 varieties of beans in the world, only a fraction of these are used for human consumption.

Beans are a very good source of fibers, protein, vitamins, complex carbohydrates, folate, and iron but some of them, like red and white kidney beans, also have toxins while they are raw.
