Beans! Beans! Beans!

Beans is known to be a healthy but boring meal in this part of the world. I remember when I was a little girl, and my mama would make me eat Beans every once in a while just because it's rich in protein (plant protein). It was never a pleasant sight to behold, watching me eat with so much displeasure. Then I discovered better ways to take in my protein-rich diet.

Today, I'll share with you amazing and more interesting ways of eating Beans.

1. Rice and Beans
