Yes, beans. This is going to be an exciting post, can’t you tell?
Beans are a pretty central part of my diet, as someone who a) is of partially Latin American ancestry, b) is poor, and c) doesn’t always feel like dealing with raw meat (eeew!). But I’ve always used beans from a can.
No more! (I hope) I’ve decided that I’m going to attempt to make the switch to dried beans! They’re cheaper, less processed, and create less waste (one little plastic bag instead of several tin cans!) Plus, they’ll be prettier to store once I get some nice glass jars to keep them in! 😛
Let’s see how long this lasts!
