I team up with chef Rich Landau and public health nutritionist Tracye McQuirter to discuss the health benefits and preparation of beans.

I like the idea to just move yourself along a spectrum as you can. Right now my personal goal is to limit meat to only once a day. I give myself an extra “pat on the back” if, like yesterday, I can go without meat for a whole day. Sometimes it’s not really that hard. It’s all about developing your “tastes”. One doesn’t change one’s eating habits abruptly, UNLESS you have a heart attack or stroke. So why not try to avoid the catastrophe in the first place. Like Al Aiello taught me: “When you’re in a hole, stop digging.”
