I got a pre-made salad at TJ's today. It had many ingredients, one of which was "adzuki beans." I Googled it and fell into an adzuki bean wiki page that was difficult to climb out of. The short story is that the beans come from a vine and adzuki is Japanese for "small bean." These small beans were sort of nondescript but innocuous. I can't imagine ever saying, "I sure could go for a bowl of adzuki beans about now." But then, I never thought I could be sold on cashew cheese and look where we are.
What I ate today:
• raw nuts
• Trader Joe's Yellow Cold Pressed Juice
• Trader Joe's Mega Crunchy Salad With A Bite - quinoa, carrots, adzuki beans, sunflower seeds, cranberries, cilantro dressing
• felafel and hummus
• coconut water
