Coconut-Smothered Black-Eyed Peas Curry with Basmati Rice and Naan
Recently, the Splendid Table podcast taught me about Blue Zones. These geographic areas contain the healthiest, longest-lived people in the world. Dan Buettner studied the cultures and diets in these places, seeking to discover their secrets.

On this basis, he recommends eating around one cup of beans a day.
