Baked beans can be enjoyed hot, cold, straight from the tin, on grainy toast or with eggs. You can add them to your brekkie to beef up the protein content and provide lasting energy to power you through the morning. You can even have them as a snack to curb mid-afternoon hunger pangs. They’re so incredibly versatile. I always keep a tin handy in my pantry (like most Aussies) as well as in my work-bag.
They may be known as the ‘musical fruit’, but despite their well-known side-effects we greatly benefit by regularly including them as part of a healthy diet. I have no doubts that they should, once and for all, be crowned our number one national food. No doubt the Spin King would agree.
