Here is a very healthy vegan dinner.
We have, clockwise from top left: sautéed chard with garlic, beet slices, black beans with green onions, and jasmine rice. All arranged in the proper ratio of 2:1:1 (vegetables, protein, carbs). Very nutritious. Very balanced.
Here is our boy cat, Tisha.
Tisha is a very strange cat. He has a ridiculous, almost desperate love for beans, any kind. Do you see the longing in his eyes? From a normally unnaturally well-behaved housecat, he becomes a persistent, doglike beggar-at-table and trash-digger whenever there are beans to be had.
