Sorry I'm so late this week blush

Week 41 - Be a Bean Counter

When it comes to a healthy diet, beans are one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet. Like meat, beans are a great source of proteins. Unlike meat, beans are low in fat (especially saturated fat), high in fiber and water, and loaded with vitamins and minerals.

The Change

Have a minimum of 3 cups of beans a week or 1/2 cup per day

Last week's change

Thanks Night. 3 cups of beans. hmmis that over the weekend now! Could be messy grin

I do eat a lot of beans. I'm not sure it's as much as half a cup a day, but it's a lot. I buy cans of mixed beans, or use lentils to add to soups and curries. I eat a lot of chick peas too. Half a cup a day is a lot though shock

I don't really eat baked beans anymore either. Too much sugar and salt.

I think 1.5 cups is ok for this week grin.

I wouldn't want to get stuck in a lift with the woman who wrote this book.

I'm exempt from this one, back on low carbing! It might just be safe to share a lift with me instead.
Thanks, night .

This is another one I'll be swerving, beans are nice but not nice enough to compensate for the after effects!

I've missed a week, haven't I?

I will post the next two changes. They can be done simultaneously. Sorry about that everyone.
