A Resolution I Can Live With!
My resolution: A new year, a new plan to eat better, and lots of ideas to make this my reality. That’s enough for me. Nothing more!
Since it’s January, I was going to write about all the health benefits of eating our products, beans in particular. But I got bored. You can Google this stuff. Of course, beans are healthy, blah blah blah.
I posted this image on our Instagram account. I started to write about how nutritious beans are but again, yawn. Instead, I posted: “Good salads needn’t be punishment. My salad trend is crunchy in these days of dubious lettuce. Midnight black beans, fennel, carrot, radish, celery, onion, oregano Indio, olive oil, lemon juice.” It ended up being our most popular post ever.
I hope 2020 ends up being a good year for all of us. So much seems out of control. Chopping vegetables and cooking good beans feels like we’re in the driver’s seat.
