    I had Baked Beans last night. Anyone who thinks they are for lazy people has never had Baked Beans. Being pregnant you've got to be on alert because as you know, beans make you fart and at this stage, I need to make a calculated decision prior to the fart as to whether its just that or something more.

    The science involved is crazy. And I'm not even trying to be funny, I'm deadly serious.

    BB are definitely lazy, but in a really good way, and far far far from being unhealthy. They are chock full of protein and fibre and vitamins and all the super good stuff. I love my BB!

    Love baked beans. Dad and used to see a personal trainer together & she could always tell if Dad had them for breaky. He wasn't farting, but had heaps more energy in our 5:30am workout!

    My kids hate them, but I love them. I have them heaps. I wish they ate them though. Now I am hungry for a cheese and baked bean toasted sandwich *drools*

    I don't like the tinned ones at all either. Ever.

    But homemade ones are entirely edible. In fact quite scrummy. I got the shock of my life when I realised the difference.

    Well, that's an exaggeration but i was very pleasantly surprised.

    It's because when I was younger, my dad was a shift worker.. And when he was on arvos or dogwatch, tinned baked beans, or spaghetti with toast was almost always on the menu. And it was definitely only because my mother was lazy. Back then it was more effort to get takeaway than it is now. I'm sure, knowing my mum, if takeaway had been easier, she would have done that instead of microwaving beans for us. I hate that I have guilty feelings because of it now, because I know that they are not all that bad, but it just brings back memories.
    On toast it is more like a lunch thing, but with a nice filled omelet it is much more than that. To me it is a real dinner that provides full nutrition for DS. It has bacon/ham, veggies, eggs, etc. This equals to the old boring "steak, potatoes and brocolli" he gets on other days.

    I think with toast it would be more of a breaky/lunch thing. But I told her I give him a 2 egg omelet with bits and pieces to go with the beans. That to me, is a dinner

    Is your aunty a dietician? If not, I'd ignore her stupid crap. She probably also thinks you have to force your kids to eat all their dinner, and a diet of chips and sausages is healthy.

    Baked Beans are awesome. Sure, they're a lazy dinner if you're feeling too slack to make anything more than baked beans on toast... but that doesn't make beans lazy, and it certainly doesn't make them unhealthy.

    Baked beans are something I'm encouraged to eat... since I have such a mini tummy and no real room for much food. It's a good proteiny food.
