Beans in general are rich in fiber and micros. I like black beans and re fried beans because they are a delightful way to hit my fiber goals.

refried beans are not healthy and heat breaks down the fiber value

Generally, I buy raw, dried beans. This way I can control the calories the way I want for consumption. Most canned beans are just fine but I'm fairly sensitive to sodium so try to stay away from them. And then other canned beans have added calories in them via some sort of sauce (ie. Baked beans, refried beans).

Plus, dried beans are waaaaaay cheaper over all.

But there really is no such thing as an unhealthy bean, so it is really about the manner in which you consume that makes it healthy or not.

Red beans & rice = healthy

Red beans & arsenic = not healthy

Beans that fit into your macros.

I personally like black beans.

You can get the fat free variety and avoid the oils and/or lard. That said they still aren't the healthiest kinda but healthy non the less.

Do you really want to eat lard? I may be wrong but my understanding is animal fat is not so great for you and same with the cheap oil.

there is nothing wrong with eating animal fats. there is a number of health benefits to animal fat.

All of them. Actually, let me take that back...no food in isolation can be healthy or unhealthy, good or bad. It's the whole diet that's either healthy or unhealthy.

Animal fats are very good for you. What do you think humans have been eating since the beginning? Point aside choose the beans that fits into your macros. Many different kinds out there find what is best for your diet and most tasty for your needs.

Not any of the fruit flavored ones since sugars from fruit are bad for you and not "Buttered Popcorn" since butter contains lard and lard contains animal fat which is not so great for you.

Not srs.

Not srs.I don't know about that - watermelon is low in carbohydrates so it should be okay. OP, buy the Sours instead - higher levels of acid will burn up any fats in your system.
