Beans, beans! The magical fruit–the more you eat the more you…
Uh, let me try again.
Beans, beans! They’re good for your heart–the more you eat the more you…
Well, you get the idea.
When I visited Honduras in 2010, we ate refried pinto beans at every single meal. I love beans, but after 21 meals of refried beans on hotdog buns (breakfast), refried beans with tortillas (lunch), and refried beans with rice (supper), even black beans would have been a welcome treat!
At the end of the week, they took us out for a special meal.
I must say, though, that my nails were extremely smooth and shiny by the end of that week. Maybe beans truly are magical.
