1300 Calories Plan: Day 23 of 90

March 29, 2011 | Goal 110 lb. by June 5, 2011

So I finally read Amen Solution and found that many types of the beans are healthy brain. Over the weekend, I bought few cans of black beans, garbanzo beans and pinto beans to try out. I also found dried beans like lentils available at Warmart. Perhaps until I find the right recipe, I will try to cook them instead of using can.

This afternoon, I made the garbanzo beans based on the can instruction of adding onion and red pepper. The only thing I changed is to saute onion and red pepper, I like them cooked not raw. Then I add balsamic vinegar, Djon mustard, fresh lemon to flavor. It actually taste ok, since I don’t like my food on the sour side. Given the fact this is the first time I tried garbanzo beans as salad. I actually think it’s ok. I serve them on the bed of raw Romaine. It taste just OK, not great. I can see how to improve them next time by adding dried cranberries. It can bring out the sweet, although cranberries are not the 50 healthy brain food but still a suggested great food.

Well, one on wants to taste my garbanzo bean salad. Well, I am good for the next 3 days for dinner then. In addition to garbanzo bean salad, I had shrimps TC cooked with ginger and onion. TC’s comment to me was “Honey, I love you no matter what, you don’t have to lose a lot of weight.” Oh dear, here we go, he is not going to work with me. Well, I want my bony behind back. He told me that he can feel my bony behind, he is too sweet. It’s no way near there.
