Alright, Now I Have to Work Out a Proper Paleoish Shit on a Shingle

This is my increasingly common first meal of the day, nowadays—10am-1pm, typically, in terms of timing (i.e., when I actually get hungry). Sorry, I just hardly ever eat bacon, anymore. Tastes like I'm eating a block of salt, to me. But, Go paleo!!!; bacon, the exclusive favorite food of the brand.

If you prep them properly, beans can be quite amazing. After a 24-36 hour soak, drain, rinse; and then, where I plop the beans into the pot: sprinkle them with garlic powder to lightly cover, then desiccated onion flakes to lightly cover, then salt & pepper, and cover them in beef stock (or, chicken, if that's all you have). I bring them to a boil, reduce to low and cover (I don't want to add any water). It's usually an hour or two, and you have glorious tender beans in a thick sauce. After the obligatory tasting and seasoning adjustments, into the fridge they go for a day, in order to form retrograde resistant starch. I often eat them cold or, just a 20-second nuking.
