Beano “Be Natural” Virtual Cook-off – Perked Up Pasta Salad

Recently I learned that some of my favorite foods are on the list of all-natural, gas-inducing foods.  Cucumbers, pasta, and corn are all on the list that create gas!  I have been asked to participate in the Beano “Be Natural” Virtual Cook-off and create a recipe that includes several all-natural gas-inducing ingredients.

beano reviewBeano contains a natural enzyme that helps prevent gas before it starts.  It is not just for beans and works on a variety of gassy foods.  It works with your body’s digestion to break down complex carbohydrates in gassy foods.  Take Beano right before you eat and you can enjoy this healthy recipe without the worry of gas!
