Sounds like a Dave Ramsey diet.
Hadn't heard of Dave Ramsey at the time. It was just what I could afford and make in my hot pot for a few cents of electricity. :-)
LOL! I cn't tell you how many cans/bags of beans, black eyed peas, and lentils I have. Usually I add a little kielbasa or chicken, carrots, onions, and celery and make hearty soups. I'm diabetic, so I have to watch the carbs and don't eat much rice, but a nice bean soup is full of fiber and is good for me.
Strange, every can of beans I buy is the 'Dave Ramsey' brand; the man must be making a mint.
Oh yeah, I live in Iowa. I guess the hungry people aren't shopping where I shop, 'cause none of these folks out here look like they've missed a meal.
