White beans are very rich in fibers which is very good for kids, my children like when I prepare them their favorite white beans soup after I explained them the real benefits of white beans and how it helps them grow stronger. The soup recipe I know from my mother, she used her own home-made sauce but I buy it from http://www.hotsaucemall.com/ store and my kids love it.

The doctor suggested him to eat horseradish and made a customized daily lifestyle coaching for him, he has gained a lot of weight in the past three months and must get rid of it because it gives complications to the heart.
