There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Old Wives Tales 0r Truth?

I have just read on line that white vinegar added to your soaking beans will reduce the gas you get from beans. Now having the bloat problems from quitting smoking.... can this help me?

But Granny told me it was a carrot. You cook a carrot in your pot of beans to help reduce the gas and bloating that beans give you.

Dr. Oz yea I like to watch that show when I can... LOL says that it will take a little bit of time for our bodies to get use to the added fiber.....

So what do you believe or do for the gas from beans?
