Can you live off of beans, rice and broccoli?
I eat this almost everyday and I can't get enough of it. Only thing I do is add a little shredded cheddar to my broccoli. I drink water only and I take vitamin C supplements. If this diet is sufficient enough, what's the least things I can add to it to make it more complete?

Thanks.

Depends on what beans.
Certain beans only have one type of simple protein chain....and humans need much more for long term health.
Certain beans are much better than others.

It's weird and I'm thankful at the same time.

What do you guys eat everyday to stay healthy? I just hate cooking long meals every single day because I'm always on the go.

A handful of peanuts.


A doctor told people years ago when times were bad, if they were short of money, to eat rice and peanuts.

He said it included every vitamin and mineral needed to be healthy for quite some time.

I don't know specifically, I'd say it's better than 90% of what other americans eat. The native americans ate what has been called the trinity. Corn, beans, and squash. Throw in a few squirrels and whatever else comes to hand, you have a balanced diet.

Sounds like my kind of meal minus the squirrel. It's just when I eat a certain amount of meat I feel sluggish and not as vital. A little bit is okay, but the average meat intake of an American makes me feel bad.

I don't remember at moment.
You are going to have to do some research....but it wasn't black beans or regular pinto beans.

Mung beans comes to mind....but i forget which for sure.

Almonds are one of the most nutritious of all nuts. As more and more consumers become dedicated to healthy life-styles, experts have found that adding natural foods, such as almonds, to your diet may be the prescription for physical wellness in the 21st century.

I've grown tired of trying to diversify meals and plan different things to eat... I wish there was a simpler solution. I would be willing to eat the same thing every day if it were nutritionally sufficient.

Beans = protein
Rice = carbs
Broccoli = trace minerals
Cheese = protein

Seems fine to me. Along with your supplement of "C" and drinking plenty of water (8 glasses a day) you are good to go.

You should be able to live more-or-less indefinitely on this diet and be well, happy, healthy.

Cous Cous helps, maybe an apple or pear in there too, I eat very similarly to you. No processed, no bread, no pasta (maybe once a month or so, but whole grain). Absolutely no sugar.
