‘Pulses’ like these may help dieters feel fuller and reduce food cravings, new analysis shows
I have two bean stories. I’ll start with my second favorite memory of beans.
I moved from NJ to Texas at the age of 25. Talk about culture shock. It was a big brand new world to explore. And if you enjoy ethnic cuisine you try to eat whatever the locals ate. I wasn’t quite sure what Texas cuisine was besides smoked brisket. On one day of exploration I passed a rather cheap and gaudy looking fast food joint that probably no longer exists.
“I wonder what this is?”
So I stopped, went in, stared at the menu and had absolutely no idea what anything was. So I ordered a bean burrito. It was your typical fast food burrito, thick brown paste, a little cheese, a little chili sauce, all wrapped up in a flour tortilla. This happened so long ago the only remaining memory was that I liked it. A lot.
So ends my second favorite bean story.
