Okay I have a confession to make. I love beans, all kinds in all shapes and sizes, however I do not like what they do to my system. But I never have to worry as I always have Beano on hand, to reduce the gas these yummy foods give me. And it’s not just beans, there are a whole slew of foods that both my husband and I used to stay away from because of their gas giving potential but with Beano we can enjoy all the foods we want and know that we have a solution on hand.

You can get the following Beano products:

  • Beano Tablets – Beano tablets can be chewed or swallowed with water. Just take Beano as directed when you’re eating meals with foods that can cause gas.
  • Beano Meltaways – One Beano Meltaway works the same as two Beano tablets. Just place on your tongue before your first bite, and it will melt away in seconds with a smooth, light flavor to help prevent gas from happening.
  • Beano To Go – Get Beano tablets in a convenient travel pack that can easily be stashed in your purse, your glove compartment or anywhere your life takes you.

I was recently asked to participate in a Beano “Be Natural” Virtual Cook-Off and I was excited to test my cooking skills by creating a recipe mixed with all the things my family likes to eat and I came up with a pretty tasty dish, if I do say so myself! Please see the recipe below.

Here is the before shot when all went into the Crockpot :)

  1. Your recipe looks and sounds delicious. I can’t wait to give it a try but maybe I should pick up some Beano at my local grocery store while I’m getting the bay leaves and chicken broth too ;)
