What's the healthiest vegetarian food for building good health?

Love Those Legumes

According to nutritionist Bonnie Minsky, beans are the healthiest, least perishable, and least expensive food for building good health. Beans can be counted as a protein or carbohydrate choice. They are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals and low in fat. But the best health news may be for hypoglycemics, diabetics, and dieters because beans also stabilize blood sugar.

These are fantastic for many recipes. I add various legumes to recipes that don't even call for them, and enjoy the results! Does anybody know if these are acid-based or alkaline-based??
