Painting by Annibale Carracci
About six months ago, a friend was patiently listening to several of my complaints about aging and some of its annoying and irritating consequences. He asked me if black beans were a part of my diet. When I told him I couldn’t recall the last time I had eaten black beans, he smiled. "Just what I figured," he said, seemingly glad that my answer was negative.
After a few more minutes listening to his praise about some of the immediate joys of black beans, I was a believer.
That was six months ago. Now, after consuming about seven ounces of black beans with my evening meal, I must say that I am a happier guy, a normal and regular guy with one major complaint about aging gone. It is so good to feel good.
