Bamboozled by Wolfgang Puck

I hate lima beans! I really hate them. I hate their taste, I hate their texture and I even hate the idea of them.

Today I'm home sick with a cold and drowning myself in liquids i.e. orange juice, ginger tea, milkshakes (milkshakes are not doctor recommended - they are Bridget recommended) and lots of soup.

I made myself a can of Chef Wolfgang Pucks' country vegetable soup, and while cuddled up on the couch watching Battlestar Galactica I bit into a HUGE lima bean! GODDAMN YOU WOLFGANG PUCK! I hate lima beans. There was no warning label on the soup can stating their were freakishly gross lima beans enclosed.

Since I was forced to eat them, I decided to look at the situation in a positive way. Below are some of the health benefits of lima beans.

p.s. Wolfgang, you SUCK!

Health Benefits
Lima beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other legumes. In addition to lowering cholesterol, lima beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, lima beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. You may already be familiar with beans' fiber and protein, but this is far from all lima beans have to offer.

Sorry, but as a graphic designer I has to say it: Who buys a soup with a label like that -> http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51XNM6FR7SL._SL500_AA280_PIbundle-12,TopRight,0,0_AA280_SH20_.jpg

glad to see that neither the cold nor the lima beans has affected your snarky, albeit adorable, sense of humor.

Get well soon!

Next time, save all your lima beans for me...and I will eat them.

(You can decide for yourself if the above has more than one meaning...or not.)

Technically, I'm allergic to all legumes, so it would be impossible for me to be a vegetarian...just sayin'...
