    Hello all,

    I have just tucked into my lunch, jacket pot with HXA of cheese and a WHOLE CAN OF BEANS.

    I love beans, but do you think a whole can is too much, even though they are free?

    Thanks :)

    I have been known to eat a full tin of beans in my spud, just because I can!

    If you are satisfied and not stuffed then it's fine, if you are stuffed then have less.

    Ive never had any less than a whole tin of beans in a spud!! I think more than that with one meal is a bit much but theres nothing wrong with 1 tin :)

    Personally I couldn't manage more than half a tin in a sitting, but if thats what you need to satisfy you then go for it!!!!

    Ditto that! The thought of a whole tin of being too much hadn't even entered my head!

    I have to agree!! Besides if i only had half a tin then the potato to bean ratio wouldnt be right - i dont like putting half a tin in the fridge either - likely hood is i wouldnt eat the other half lol

    Just one baked bean would be too many as far as I am concerned. Can't stand the things - don't even like being in the same room as someone eating them!!

    But if your digestive system can stand it - go for it! They are free, cheap, good for you and high in fibre.
