If there’s any week that has taught me a lesson in the art of meal planning, it’s this one.
Inadvertently, I thinking that it would be a great idea to have soup and a sandwich for lunch and black beans and rice for dinner, I proceeded to do some grocery shopping.
Well, being the not-so-very-domestically-incli
ned person that I am, I opted to buy a soup mix rather than making it from scratch, and also rather than buying a whole bunch of canned soups.
I checked out the varieties that were available. I looked at the label, and what do you know? Well, it seems that chili won out being about 400 or so mgs lower in sodium that the other soups per serving, and it is heartier than all of the other ones that were available.
So I put the chili mix in my cart not once thinking about how it would go with the black beans and rice I had planned for dinner.
It actually sounds like it would go well, as if there’s a theme, but it has since dawned on me that there is one problem.
Beans, beans, beans. …
And add to that the milled flax seed I add to my cereal for breakfast! Sheesh, I think I’m going to have the busiest colon in the whole western hemisphere if I’m not careful! Yikes!
Not a very good plan on my part!
And of course, we all know that beans are the musical fruit; but really, no one, except maybe the occasional obnoxious 5-year-old, wants to here that tune!
Beano here I come! Save me from myself and my poor planning!
