I need your recipes!!!!

Day six of this new diet.
You know what?
It's not that bad.
I did drool over the Cookies 'n Cream ice cream
that is currently residing in our freezer.
I nicely asked Dustin if he could move it to our
basement freezer because I'm afraid if I did it some might be missing
by the time it got there. :-)
The peanut butter jar held a strange fixation for me this morning.
I think I can have it, but I'm not sure, so I'm not going to
until I talk to her. It does have a lot of sugar in it.
Denying yourself is hard in all areas of life. And food is so big in America.
It is everywhere! I may have to stop watching commercials till the cravings pass. :-) Even if it doesn't taste good in real life, somehow they manage to make it drool worthy on the screen.
But there have been blessings.
I feel better.
Now that my cold is disappearing, I can tell I feel better.
How much better, I don't know yet.
Is it just one of my good days?
Maybe, maybe not.
I know this sounds superficial, but another is I am losing weight.
I was thinking today that this diet would be so much harder if it was causing me to put on the pounds.
At least when I have to say no to Cookies 'n Cream, I can say it's for a good reason.
Ironically, depriving myself of sweet food for weight loss seems much more worthy than hopefully shrinking a tumor.
See? So superficial am I.
But... if it is shrinking the weight, prayerfully it will soon do the same to the tumor.

But, back to the main reason I'm writing.
I could really use some recipes with Beans in them.
I've done chili, but, even that gets old.
So, if you have some, send them my way.
Thank you in advance!

My husband loved them and he is "Picky Eater" personified :)

My mother-in-law is actually on a very similar diet for her osteoporosis. I know she's been getting pretty creative with her beans :)

There is a natural peanut butter without sugar. I ate the kind without salt, too, :( for my diet, but it is still really good. A slab on celery and you actually feel like you are getting a treat.
