Whole Foods carries no-salt beans for a very decent $.69/can. When you are feeling extremely lazy, I recommend the following for a very filling, nutritious, fibrous, inexpensive and delicious lunch:
- 1/2 can of no-salt red kidney beans
- 1/2 can of no-salt cannellini beans
- 1/2 can of no-salt garbanzo beans
- 1/4 cup of olive-oil based salad dressing (I used Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar).
Open the cans and drain the beans. Put the salad dressing in your tupperware. Add the drained beans. Done. Eat with multigrain crackers. The bean salad is also quite pretty. Sometimes when you are working, you just can’t leave your environs (meetings, annoying people, etc.) – but you should not go hungry. Eat this and prosper!
