Today’s focus is on making food choices that improve your overall health aka food swap.
One of my fave food swaps (and I will even say upgrades) is to include more beans in my meal planning. One of the keys to making beans and keeping the gas low is to soak dried beans for 24-48 hours, rinsing them 2x/day while soaking. The soak/rinse combo removes oligosacchrides. This weird word is actually *good* for the gut but can give the toot-toot effect.
