Baked Beans?

I see these are quite high in carbs.

Would they be any good as the sole carb source in a PPWO meal at around 2000/2100?

Not sure what you could add for the protein though.

    don't see why not, amount to suit goals, variation is key

    any protein source will do, meat, eggs etc add some veg too.

    I was wondering what would taste nice with just beans.

    Maybe Diet Coke and lentils?

    cook minced turkey in a pan, add baked beans + a little grated cheese. add some chili powder if you like.

    pour the mix onto toasted bagel or pasta, whatever carb you like.

    one of the very little heinz tins isabout 100kcal. highish GI though, lots of sugar. decent amount of protein in beans.

    IMO you need a "proper" carb with them, maybe some bread.

    The problem with beans is that people overcook them and add brown sugar.

    You could make some yourself....

    you can still have them, whole diet mate!

    buy the reduced sugar varieties if your worried about the sugar, or heavily drain the sauce away

    baked beans are a superb food source if you buy the low salt/sugar cans, full of fibre and protein and a decent source of carbs, one of my favourite meals is beans on wholemeal toast with a poached egg

    we run and we run to catch up with the sun but its sinking

    As you're cutting, why not try other types of tinned beans e.g. red kidney, borlotti, navy, black-eye, garbanzo (chick peas)? Or buy dried beans, soak overnight and boil in lightly salted water yourself? You can do them in a microwave to speed the cooking.

    Cheapo baked beans are somewhat overcooked (which makes them more insulinogenic - not too good when you're trying to cut).

    check out the tin there isnt that much sugar in them and tonns of fibre. Also protein too so IMO they are a good food.

    I read beans on toast gives a full amino profile, good hey, add some egg in there too to boost the protein and you got a tasty snack
