    Lighten Up the Holidays with J Hawkens Bean Pie

/24-7PressRelease/ - GOODLAND, KS, December 04, 2007 - It's a hard statistic to swallow, but taking various estimates into account, it appears that the average Thanksgiving meal packs well over 3,000 calories. This amount of calories equals eating between 25-50% more than the recommended calorie intake for the average adult (1,600 to 2,400 calories per day RDA). Ridding yourself of all those calories would require you to walk 30 miles or run for about four hours. However, there are many ways to include lighter recipes, including desserts, in your traditional fare so that your family might enjoy the holidays without the worry of packing on unneeded pounds. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we all seem to do a little more eating than normal and it's estimated that the average American gains about seven pounds during that period. And with the recent 60 Minutes special highlighting the obesity & nutritional issues in the US, this is definitely something that should be at the forefront of everyone's mind. Aware of the less-than-ideal food choices we're sometimes left with, the J. Hawkens Bean Company has been promoting a return to such healthy fare as pinto beans by offering innovative recipes such as the 'Hawkens Pie', a deliciously low-fat alternative to the traditional pecan pie, and Breakfast Bean Muffins made with legumes.

The farms of J Hawkens have been quietly producing beans in western Kansas for several generations; only now, amidst the growing epidemic of the growing American, has the family decided to act. By offering more nutritious foods into regular rotation on the family table, they insist that you'll not only be giving them a great source of fiber and significant amounts of other nutrients but bringing your brood together for a sit-down meal as well.

Don't drop the desserts, switch to these new holiday favorites. Obesity is a serious threat to our nation and threatens our youth. By subtracting nutritionally deficient foods from a diet, parents can combat the issue while adding such wholesome foods such as legumes. J Hawkens created the Hawkens Pie to take the place of more fattening holiday dessert choices.
