Beans, beans, the musical fruit

The more you eat, the more you toot

The more you toot, the better you feel

So let's eat beans with every meal!

 

I'm sure that short, little tune takes you back to your playground days like it does me.  I remember growing up and having a few laughs over one of nature's most smelly culprits.  As goofy and childlike as the song may be it has a lot of truth beneath the verses within it.


Beans are part of the legume family which also include lentils, peas, soy, and peanuts.  While beans may be the butt of many flatulent jokes they have some incredible health benefits and should be included in one's diet if you're looking to lose weight and feel great.


Health Benefits of Beans


Beans have been referred to by some as the "poor man's meat" which may lead people to believe that they are an inferior food and have little nutritional value.  However, nothing could be further from the truth because beans are naturally low in fat, high in fiber, have no cholesterol, and contain an array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are essential to vibrant health [1].  They are also an excellent source of complex carbohydrates and protein which, as you know, are important factors in keeping your body functioning at optimum levels on a daily basis.

How amazing an idea, about the gases that human bodies produce as part of their digestive processes... THE REALLY AMAZING IDEA IS THAT VEGANS ARE ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL.. THOSE WHO ESPOUSE THESE VEGETABLE-BASED DIETS SHOULD BE TELLING THE WORLD THE SHOCKING TRUTH.

THAT EATING PROPERLY MAKES THE BODY GASES CLEAN AND NOT AT ALL ANYTHING TO BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT.

THE DIGESTIVE PROCESSES ARE BASICALLY MESOPHILLIC COMPOSTING AND THERE SHOULD BE NO SMELL FROM THAT PROCESS.

IF THERE WERE, THEN IT'S TIME TO START ROUTING THROUGH THE LIST OF FOOD ITEMS TO FIND WHERE THE PROBLEM IS COMING FROM.

SURELY VEGANS ARE NOT SO TIMID OTHERWISE, SO WHY NOT MAKE THIS AN ISSUE. BODY GASES SHOULD BE THE GAGE OF HOW WELL YOU ARE MANAGING YOUR DIET.

MAKE THE EXCESSIVE MEAT-EATERS RUN FOR COVER BECAUSE THEIR BODY GASES ARE WHY THE CORPORATIONS MAKE BIG MONEY -- FROM COLOGNES TO PHARMACEUTICALS.

SAME WITH SWEAT. SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT BUT RELATED.

EVEN VEGANS NEED TO WATCH OUT FOR OVER PROCESSED PHONEY FOODS, IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST AVOID ALL ANIMAL PRODUCTS.

BE BRAVE, BE RADICAL, BE LIBERATED. BE BOLD AND TRUTHFUL ABOUT BODY GASES AS A PROPER GAGE OF PROPER DIET.
