and let me say, im not a vegetarian, but ive been addicted to this one meal for the past 2-3 weeks...
ive been buying dried beans. chickpeas, red beans, pinto, and black.
soaking them for 24 hours(changing the water several times, so NO GAS, hence, no fart jokes apply)
boiling them up with several cloves of garlic
tossing them with chopped green onions and carrots and fresh roasted sunflower seeds
mixing in a big dollop of vegenaise(i actually like it better than regular mayo, it lacks that weird eggy tang)
and then spreading it in a toasted pita with a slice of heirloom tomato and balsamic vinaigrette poured over all of it...
tastes amazing, and ive been feeling FREAKING FANTASTIC since ive started eating it... im guessing all the protein from the beans. i have so much energy, my house keeps getting cleaner and cleaner, and at work im running up stairs and never hitting that "im sick of this and want to go home" wall i normally always hit.
anyone have any ideas of what i should add into it, nutrition-wise?
as far as meat and bad-for-me crap goes, ive also been eating sliced up hard salami with cream cheese and cheshire cheese on rice crackers.. and the occasional fried egg, bacon, and tomato sandwich..edit on 21-10-2011 by BohemianBrim because: wrong bean nameedit on 21-10-2011 by BohemianBrim because: (no reason given)
