The beans are full of vegetable protein, which we need for muscle building and maintenance. The magnesium contained in the beans is also good for our muscles, as it allows them to relax and thus protects them from cramps.

If you have forgotten to soak the beans overnight, use a can of kidney beans as an alternative, then add them to the soup only in the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. However, the hearty soup with bacon also tastes good with white beans, whether dried and soaked or canned.
