Nah, nothing to worry about. Go enjoy that plate of green beans.

Beans are not shining and are definietly soft, not crunch. But they were served at 11 and have been sitting in lukewarm water since then so who knows what that last part means.

And like I said, I wouldn't be going for the fried chicken either way. It'd just be going back down to grab another massive plate of green beans or just staying at my desk for another hour til I leave work to go to the gym.

So is there a problem with a heaping plate of green beans that wasn't planned for in the day? I already messed up at lunch and accepted a free (small) bag of popcorn

Are the beans "glistening" ? If so, there is some type of oil (probably olive) or butter or both on the beans. How much they shine will give you an idea of how much oil or whatever is on the beans. Lots of shine, lots of oil. Less shine, less oil.

Did the beans have a crunch to them ? Fresh green beans that are cooked al dente, have a slight crunch. canned beans, no crunch, soft in texture.

I'd say if you're craving some green beans, have some green beans. It strikes me as a better choice than over indulging in the fried chicken.

Serious question here, even though it sounds like I may be joking. There's a lot of left over food from a reward BBQ at work for 200 safedays. Fried chicken, pulled pork, 'nilla pudding, rice, bread, and green beans. Right now its three in the afternoon, and I want to go down and have another HUGE plate of the green beans. They're in big warming serving trays, and there might be a little oil on them judging by the flavor but I'm not sure. I didn't taste butter at least, and if there is oil its not a big amount, again judging by flavor. Any have experience with places that cater like this and how they prepare them? Seems to me like they'd just open those massive cans of cut green beans they sell at sam's club and warm them up. Could it be just regular green beans hopefully? No fat added.

Is this a problem? I already had one plate full and want another. I'm talking it'd be easier to weigh the amount I'm eating in pounds rather than grams or ounces haha. And its not like this is a substtution for anything. There's no temptation for me to go after the fried chicken, just wanting to eat grean veggies until my stomach is full.
