Beans are good for you’re… & a night cap!

…heart, body, muscles, digestive system, brain, and everything else in your body. A great vegetable protein to use in all kinds of dishes. I’m trying to incorporate them more into my diet. I thought I would share the great site I found to guide me through my adventure with chickpeas. I actually like using garbanzo better. So, this site also teaches you how to soak and cook all beans, with or without a pressure cooker. Also gives a great list of herbs and spices to add to specific types of beans! I hope you all find this as useful as I did!

I have some pinto beans and I’m thinking a good veggie soup sounds perfect! Kale, rice noodles, celery, carrots, garbanzo, and pinto beans. Any other ideas?? I’m going to be experimenting over the next few days and I’ll share my adventure soon. 🙂

This site – which is the first time I’ve heard of The George Mateljan Foundation for the World’s Healthiest Foods (so I’ll be exploring and hoping for great information) http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=58 talks about all the wonderful benefits of garbanzo beans. I’m impressed by what I’ve read so far – not necessarily about the beans, but about the organization! I’ll do some more research on how they conduct their research and share if deemed qualified!

On another note – sleeping is a lot easier on the BePure cleanse. I’m not sure if it my body being more tired than normal, so I’m able to go to sleep before 1am. Maybe it’s due to the diet restrictions – no caffeine or alcohol. I’m not an abuser of either of the two – but I do enjoy both. Since these have both been cut out, I’m sleeping a lot better – not necessarily more hours – but earlier to sleep, earlier and easier to wake. Tomorrow I plan on doing hot yoga before I work! Let’s see how easy 8am comes around!

Best wishes to all 🙂
