Tell Me Something Good

The last of the ham and the bone from the holiday went into my Great Northern Bean Soup. White beans and ham go together like white leather at a Poison concert, like tasseled shoes at a Republican convention, like...okay, that's all I got. But every time I make a bean dish I pat myself on the back and am reminded that each cup is about 14 grams of protein and fiber, that its rich in iron, magnesium and folate. Even though I don't know exactly what that all really means, I know its a good thing.

Or at least I know it helps the high sodium, high cholesterol ham go down my conscience. You gotta put a positive spin on these facts girls.
