Here’s my week in review and the top 5 things I learned from the Beans and Rice Experiment
By Lori Williams on November 14, 2013
I’ve enjoyed having dialogues about this beans and rice experiment with people on the phone, on Facebook, or in person. They ask lots of questions. I keep wanting to say, “read my blog, it’s all in there.” But one way or another, the story is being told. Read on to see what fab recipe I made today with beans and rice, and what I’m learning through this journey.

Well I’ve made it to the 4th day! The good news is I’ve been getting 3 servings out of each recipe I’ve made, so I don’t have to cook much. The bad news is that I’m still eating beans and rice and you can only dress it up so many ways! Tomorrow is like an oasis because I get to eat normal food. Who would have thought I’d be so excited about 3 meetings that allow me to eat a regular diet? It’s hard to fathom how people eat plain beans and rice day in and day out for years, and only get to eat one meal a day. When your choice is this or starvation, it’s not really a choice. Of course I’ve heard about people living this way and have seen pictures and videos, but until you experience a small taste of their life, you don’t really get it. Food is obviously only one aspect of their life. Add the primitive living conditions, extreme poverty, health risks, and other unfathomable conditions and most of us would be ready to go home after one day.

It’s only Tuesday! I write this after completing 2 days of this challenge to eat Beans and Rice for 7 days. Two days doesn’t sound like much, but when you have actually eaten beans and rice for the last 6 meals like I have, you start thinking “Is it Sunday yet?” Read on to see how I managed to keep going, and what I’m learning through this experiment.
