Beans, Beans…….No Good

When I started this voyage of eating as a vegetarian, I knew it would be hard but this past weekend was probably my worst weekend in a while. I was getting severe stomach pains Saturday morning after eating and I went to the hospital and was treated for an inflamed gallbladder. Just a little background: I have been eating beans almost everyday to keep my protein levels at a normal rate, and this weekend I realized how high in fat some beans can be. Apparently too many fatty food items were in my choices as a vegetarian, so I definitely learned a big lesson. After talking to the ER doctor about my recent change in diet, he advised I stick to “low fat” bean choices. To think, I was just scared of passing out…..I should have been scared of gallbladder problems!
