Depends on goal: Lentils have high protein content. Cannellini beans have higher protein content, but also more carbohydrate and so for losing weight, may not be a better choice. Edamame has high protein, lower carbohydrate content, but soy beans have enzyme inhibitors which may block the action of enzymes for protein digestion.

In one cup of green beans, you get about 27% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C, 13% of your daily requirement of fiber, and they also contain iron, B-6, Vitamin A, Magnesium, and Potassium.
