This is something very interesting. A friend of mine went to visit a remote area in Mexico. He said while he was there all they had to eat was beans and Coffee. The people in that village only ate that.. everyday. Could you survive on this food? Also would you get bored of it?

I don't think it would provide all the nutrition, you need a balanced diet to remain healthy and vitamins that you get from green vegetables and fruits. It is worth checking the health of these people.

I would not prefer it but if I had to live on it, I think I could do it just to survive. It would be better than nothing at all. We have to eat something to live and coffee would be ok to drink too.

I like beans, all kinds & I love coffee. Beans are very nutritious. Howevrr, I doubt whether beans contain all the vitamins we need daily. I am quite sure coffee does not contain sufficient daily vitamins. So, I suspect these people suffer from various vitamin deficiencies. So, if I was to go on a beans & coffee diet, I would go crazy from lack of certain vitamins.

I have severe food allergies, so if I eat too much of one kind of food, I'll develop an allergy to it. So I'm absolutely certain if I ate only beans and coffee every day, it wouldn't take long before I'd develop a bad allergy. I'm sure I'd get bored of it real quick too, but I'd be so hungry that I wouldn't care. My main concern would be my food allergies though.

I live on coffee now, so beans would be an added bonus lol. I don't think I would get bored with the coffee but only eating beans everyday would be very boring. I would need to add some chocolate to my diet as well then it would be ok.

No I would not live on beans and coffee alone. It is not healthy. I am sure those villagers could grow other vegetables too for a verity.
