Pasta, Beans and the Pre-Frontal Cortex

Today was a big day for learnin'.  I was feeling ancy and couldn't concentrate on any fictional books in my Audible stash, so I delved into some of health books in my archives.  After a few hours, I was so  excited about the information that had permeated my brain matter (I'm feeling like a smartypants....just humor me) that I decided that I had to share it with you right away.

In my excitement, I got a little tongue-tied a few times, but hopefully I get my points across.  I was all worked up about my new "Pasta Intel".   Take a peek and I'll clarify my point afterward:



I know that I stumbled through the bean info, so just to be a little more clear, let me write it out.  A serving of black beans is usually one cup.  In that cup, you'll get 12 yummy grams of protein and 9 filling grams of fiber.  Whoo hooo!  As a bonus, you get some fancy folate which (stokes) muscle growth, as well as some tasty copper to help strengthen your tendons.  Yowza!  Beans are sounding like a fabulous choice, aren't they?

And I wasn't foolin' when I mentioned that eating four servings of beans or legumes each week will accelerate weight loss.  I feel a big ole batch of extra beany chili in my near future.

So, after the whole pasta and bean excitement died down, I listened to a new book that I found after searching on line for information about will power.  Here's more about that..... and bear with me..... just when you start to worry about whether I had been drinking excessively while recording the following video, I bring it all together and make it simple.  Enjoy! 😉
