" For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. " Song of Solomon

Slow Carb Bowl

Carbs are good.  Carbs are bad.  Well, it depends.  Not all carbs are equal.

Kidney beans are a good carb, a slow carb.

They are cheap and easy.  For a quick meal make this:

  • 1/2 cup of kidney beans drained
  • one hard boiled egg diced
  • a teaspoon of sweet pickles or relish
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon diced onion
There you have it:  a carb, a protein and a fat.  A complete meal in a bowl.  Add a glass of tomato or V8 juice.  For dessert have a banana.  Not a lot of calories and some staying power.
