Mediterranean Food: Giant White Beans with Aubergine and Onions


A long time ago a good friend told me to eat more beans. She was convinced I would be a lot less  pale if I would eat the right things.

Nowadays I eat a lot of them.

I am still pale. But I have a lot more freckles. Do you think it`s because of the beans?
