I’m pretty pumped about this new food thing I’ve found. I actually want to thank my Sis-In-Law, Amy, for introducing it and sharing some for me to try! So, this is “pasta” that is really beans – and it’s great for all you 24 Day Challengers! Many of us are doing the challenge this time of year to boost our immune system and see to it that we have control going into the holidays. Ok, calm down. I know… beans??? That doesn’t sound so yummy… so that’s why I decided to fall on my sword, try it first, and THEN give an honest assessment of it.
Today I cooked this one. I cooked it like normal pasta, then seasoned with salt and pepper, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and drizzled with olive oil. Kept it simple and I LOVED it! Really really LOVED it! I’m not lying. Nothin’ wrong with this.
It’s made of Mung Beans. I’m sure I’ve eaten them before and just didn’t know it. In all honesty, I really didn’t know what that was, so I googled it. Good stuff!!! Read about it here.
There are other kinds of this “pasta” that I will try out and report back on!
In the mean time, you really should get this food in your pantry ASAP.

This is a list that
put out on foods that contain healthy fats that can
“quell your appetite, cutting the number of calories you eat in a day, while improving your heart health and stoking your metabolism.”
Grass-Fed Beef naturally leaner, fewer calories, and higher omega 3’s compared to conventional meat
Coconut battles bacteria and improves cholesterol scores
Dark Chocolate “contains pure cocoa butter, a source of digestion-slowing stearic acid. Milk chocolate’s cocoa butter content, on the other hand, is tempered with added butter fat and, as a result, passes more quickly through your GI tract. Because dark chocolate takes more time to process, it staves off hunger and helps you lose weight.”
Almond Butter contain a compound that limits the amount of fat absorbed by the body
I would also like to add:
Avocados and Flaxseeds
