The Paleo-Orangutan CookBox: How to Cook Refried Black Beans

We’ve noticed that a lot of these health and fitness sites put a lot into the importance of nutrition and a lot into the Paleolithic, primal lifestyle.  So, we will be adding a few posts and “how to” videos on The Primal Master Lifestyle.  Here is episode 1, where we demo how to cook refried black beans using a solar-heated cast-iron frying pan.  These are good for you despite what some people say.  A single cup of black beans (once they’ve been cooked . . . uncooked they may pass completely in their original, undigested state and provide neither calories nor protein) will give you 15 g of protein, along with iron, magnesium phosphorus and manganese (all natural and derived from the dirt in which they grew) and the B vitamins thiamin and folate, or folic acid.
