“Meaty” Vegetarian Pinto Beans

Besides being a AFPA certified Nutrition and Wellness consultant and author, I am also a trucker who transports and delivers construction and industrial supplies to pay my bills. I often hear people who are on the road a lot say they cannot eat healthy, which is something I find to be simply a load of baloney, lame excuses if you will. With a little pre-planning it is always possible to eat healthy while on the go. You just have to be willing to put in a little effort. This simple, inexpensive recipe is a part of my food that I consume on a regular basis while I’m out on the road in my semi. It keeps good and warm in an insulated food container that can be purchased inexpensively at any Walmart.
