5.5 Lbs of Beans
I threw in some Indian seasonings to spice things up a bit, figuring it would not change the nutrition very much. I wanted to add a pound of bacon, some onions, a block of cheese, and a pack of burritos, but I resisted.
Here is Breakfast:
Although there has been some rumor that the contents of this photo came from the posterior of a moose, I can assure you it came from a can. I know it looks great, and it was.
I packed a bunch in a container for lunch and took it to work.
I had breakfast around 7:30, then I had a nice brunch around 10:30, right when I was getting hungry. My brunchmates were eating waffles, home-fries, cinnamon buns, eggs, and bacon. I can’t be sure, but I think they were a little jealous. This is how they were looking at my food:
I did some work, then had a really long meeting, and by that time I was hungry again. No sweat, I had plenty of beans. So I ate them.
Now, I have been feeling a bit under the weather for the past two weeks, so it is hard to judge exactly how they made me feel. All I can say for sure, is that on this day I felt better than I had for the past two weeks. Pretty darn good to tell you the truth.
I went on a trail run in the late afternoon. I was glad to be feeling good again and a little bit of extra jet propulsion came in handy. It was a hilly and steep course, but even so my time was pretty bad. I’d tell you what it was, but I’m actually a little bit embarrassed, so I won’t. I was just dragging.
I went home, and I was really tired. Hungry too, but too tired to bother with eating. I just sat on the couch. For quite a while. Eventually I got my act together and whipped up a delicious treat.
I ate till I was full. Aside from being a bit slow on the run, all around I would have to rank this as one of my best foods yet.
Taste: Delicious! (with added seasonings)
Fulness Factor: Excellent. I got hungry at the right times, but had plenty to eat.
X Factor: I felt a sense of unity with the billions of people worldwide who rely on beans for the majority of their protein.
Ps: Not nearly as musical as the rhymes suggest.
In other News: While studying my web stats I learned that the popularity of this blog is inversely proportional to how good I feel on whatever food I eat.
