Healthy is the New Sexy with Costa Rica's Gallo Pinto

Adding a sexy, healthy spin to our familiar breakfast menu of pancakes, eggs and cereal is now easier than ever with Costa Rica’s “gallo pinto.” A recent study published by Nutrition Journal found that the pairing of any type of beans with rice can help stop unhealthy blood sugar spikes in adults with type 2 diabetes. With 25.8 million people in the U.S. living with this condition, Costa Rican “gallo pinto” is both a healthy and creative alternative to the mundane breakfast menu.
