Bean There; Done That
Updated: Feb 28
Hello Future Fit Foods fans,
Before we kick off with our latest blog, we wanted to thank many of you for making our Amazon launch successful!
Thank you so very much for your support! Your purchase allows us to bring more nutrient-dense mini-meals to more heartbeats out there in the wild and develop more tasty flavors. Stay tuned.
So 'bean there, done that' is traditionally used as a flippant expression of boredom. We think it is fitting, considering that many of us may think beans are boring.
Beans have even been the butt of jokes or rhymes like 'beans, beans, they're good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you _________!
At Future Fit Foods, we think beans are beautiful inside and out and can play a role in doing the same for you.
While there are many new plant-based options and more innovations online every day, many of these are pea protein alternatives and involve a healthy dose of chemistry to boot.
We equally enjoy these alternatives but primarily as treats rather than daily staples, so we prefer to turn to the beautiful, unique, and delicious bean.
Did you know you can nearly fill a painter's palette with all the colors of beans? Pinks, reds, yellows, blacks, greens, purples, whites, and many shades in between.
Beans can make dyes. Who knew, right?
The protein-powered dried black bean's leftover water from soaking can produce shades of blue, blue-green to lavender, just like a magic bean.
We embrace beanery at Future Fit Foods as part of our design promise to bring you clean, nutrient-dense, and plant-based recipes that are good for you and the planet.
The black-eyed peas, yes, they are a bean, used in our delicious smokey Southern Soul recipe, have a low carbon impact, and play an essential role in improving soil health. They are also high in protein and fiber and contain micronutrients like folate, copper, and thiamine.
Sprouted Mung Beans used in our bountiful Seven Seas recipe have a low carbon footprint and are high in minerals, protein, fiber, and antioxidants.
Adzuki Beans used in our delicious Spice Route recipe contain over 20 antioxidants, fiber, and protein and are power-packed with potassium, magnesium, and folate with a low carbon footprint.
So while you may still think bean there; and done that, we believe beans punch above their weight and are genuinely a Future Fit Food. Tell us, what's your go-to bean for a protein and flavor punch?
