View Full Version : Beans, snapea crisps, hot dogs and Moes
06-19-2011, 01:19 PM
Hey guys, I have a few questions.
Can you eat different kinds of beans three times a week? Like could you eat black beans three times and then pinto beans three times, or is it just beans in general three times a week?
Also, has anyone seen Snapea Crisps and does anyone know if these are ok? I saw they have rice in them, but I don't know if it's brown rice.
I have not been able to find any hot dogs that seem ok -does anyone know of a type that is?
And one more question.. does anyone know if the salsa and pico de gallo is ok at Moes? Or if their meat is?
Lots of questions.. thanks guys!

Welcome to FAA, Newbie!
I think that in general the same starchy veg can be used 3 times a week - like the same grain can be used up to 3 times a week. I'm not sure if you are wanting to eat only beans as a starchy veg, but it's not something that I would recommend as this food plan has a wide range of variety and it's really important for the body to get as much variety into the weekly food plan as possible. I've been reluctant to add more greens - either to steam them for dinner or to add them to my daily salad and now I'm finding out that I'm not getting enough lutein for healthy eyes. The daily supplement that I've been taking has lutein listed, but I guess that the slogan, "Fresh is best" is true for me for this problem. I hope that you will give more thought to adding variety and discussing this with your sponsor is always a good choice.

Good points! Thanks :)
Another question: are soybeans ok to eat? Is that considered a bean?

Yes, soybeans are fine and are actually quite good when cooked from scratch, I recently found. I'm always learning here on the suggested FAA food plan!
Thanks for asking your questions. Keep coming back!

I was tested for allergies a long time ago. Imagine my shock when I found out that I was allergic to EVERYTHING that I ate on a regular basis. Corn. tomatos, cherries, citrus etc... The allergies resolved themselves after I stopped eating those foods and started eating a larger variety of food. Eventually, I was able to reintroduce the things I used to react to. So it is important to plan variety into your plan. However SWF is always and will always be "allergic" for me!
Thanks for letting me share!

Thanks for sharing about the allergies to foods. I am reminded that this is one of the reasons that we are advised to rotate, so as to not cause a particular food to become a trigger and lead us back into the addictive substances. As we continue our journey and follow the food plan there are sometimes situations where a person begins to have problems with foods they have been eating. I think this is also a good reason to journal any side effects, symptoms, or anything else that is experienced during the following and eating on you food plan. This will help to identify what might be going on if something develops later, and you will have that documentation if you have noted it where you are writing down the foods that you are eating at that meal or during that day.
