    Hmm, good question. Beans have a decent amount of protein, and fiber. I would be worried about the fat and sugar in them though.

    Your PWO consumption is lacking in protein. Backed beans would be okay to eat as a PWO meal and hour after your shake, with some lean protein sources, so it will be a complete protein (beans, by themselves, are incomplete). Is it possible to find whey protein in your area?
    I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull. This is Cringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: "By the power of Greyskull, I have the power!" Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

    Bump to that. Add a scoop of whey into your glass of milk, and it sounds okay. The sugar isn't much of a concern post-workout, and there's very little fat in most baked beans.

    Beans, beans, the musical fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot....
    1. I thought all along you'd be the death of me, but I met one tonight who wants what's left of me!
    2. You are so full of s***, maintenance is still unclogging the toilet.
    3. Save a horse, ride a cowboy!
    4. This mission does not exist, nor will it ever exist.
    5. I'd like to check you for ticks.

    Why eat baked beans though when you could have black. Black beans are the bomb and then you don't have to worry about the sugar content. Just a suggestion.

    Quite a bit of your pwo nutrition is based on fructose, which is absolutely worthless pwo. I would drop the fruit juice, the honey, the beans and add whey to your milk, with some dextrose and creatine. Then you'll have a good pwo shake.
    A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.

    "Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him."
    -Nietzsche
