The Problem With Baked Beans

As you may or may not know, there is a popular rhyme explaining the problem with baked beans, it goes like this: beans, beans, they’re good for your heart, the more you eat the more you… well. I’m sure you can figure out how it ends (if not, here’s a clue: it rhymes with heart and is a word linked to a certain noisy bodily process). But that’s not the main problem in my opinion, let me draw a diagram of a dinner for you: 
That’s pretty easy to follow right? Food 1 is the food which is rated most highly and so the one which is eaten last, whereas Food 3 is the one which is the worst (probably something mediocre) and so you’d eat your dinner in reverse numerical order, 3, 2, 1. This means that you get to enjoy the meal because it gets better as it goes along. Now, let me show you a diagram showing a dinner which includes baked beans:
In this hypothetical meal, the beans are Food 3 (and so the least appealing of them) but the problem still exists even if they were given the honour of being Food 1. As you can see, Foods 1 & 2 are inside Food 3, this is due to the liquid nature of Food 3. This completely destroys the dinner-eating method described in the previous paragraph; you can’t start by eating your least favourite food, because it’s all over the other two foods, tainting their flavour throughout the meal. On the other hand, if it was your favourite, you have to be eating it throughout, rather than building up towards it.
    However, while those pesky beans can be a problem, here’s my solution:
With a second plate, you can eat normally without any contamination! Surely this is the logical thing to do? But my family seem to think I’m crazy. I can’t be the only one who does this!
