In my attempt to eat plant-based, I have found a cheap and healthy lunch that costs about $1 and is super-quick to prepare!
The main reason I became interested in beans was because of the link of beans to longevity. Beans apparently help people to live longer.
Beans and Bread with low-fat sour cream:
Directions: Heat beans to boiling for prescribed time and cut bread. Dollop sour cream and enjoy! I typically eat 1/2 can and 1/8 of bread loaf per lunch meal. About $1 for lunch!….low sodium AND cultured sour cream for gut health.
Food Allergies or Sensitivities?
Milk or Casein avoidance: Try the beans and bread without the sour cream.
Wheat or Gluten avoidance: Try beans without the bread……..tell me in the comments below about your favorite gluten-free bread substitute!
Bean selection: I have tried several types of beans and the Tri-Bean blend of dark red kidneys, black beans and pintos are the yummiest. Please help us with your suggestions and preferences in the comments below.
A food/health journal works nicely for me to track patterns of how my body deals with different foods.

That rosemary/olive oil bread is awesome and makes the best croutons 🙂
Nice! Never tried that!
Idk about this but………. I’ll try it after Thanksgiving. I gotta do the Shirley Caesar Thanksgiving song (if you don’t know what it is, look it up on YouTube)
So … I was curious how the Kroger loaf nutrition compared to my box mix of Rosemary/Sage bread…. Almost equal in Fat, Carbs, Protein… Sodium is 100mg lower in the box mix (280mg) …so if you’re a baker and watching sodium intake, making your own is an option.
