  • I’ve lost 50 pounds year to date and my biggest nutrition tip is being knowledgeable on what you put in your mouth. One way to do this is by using free or paid for online resources that breakdown the nutrition content in the food you eat. Most online tools will give you estimates of your required protein, carbs and fats, using your current weight and future weight goals. In addition, you will be able to log in what you eat to determine if you are feeding well. This helped me a lot.

  • I prefer Canned beans, various beans, sometimes I have only one meal a day and it will be a can of beans and I will drink a glass of V8 juice with my can of beans…the beans I sometimes just mix Apple Cider vinegar and spices for flavor and Health:)…

  • Man I love my legumes all of them, you can make so many delicious dishes.
    Red lentils soup �� green lentils curry, black eyed beans Brazilian fejolada, red kidney beans with pasta and potatoes �� chickpeas hummus and many more dishes. They are great for ethnic dishes which I loooove making. Legumes are life ��������people who don’t like them are missing a lot, on top of it they are really good for us, what more do we want?!? I love mines dried as well as canned I don’t discriminate ��

  • No one gets diseases from higher sodium unless you have kidneg disease your body simply gets rid of it. Low sodium however is life threatening. I really don’t believe this us an issue. Thank you for a really helpful video.

  • I strongly disagree that it is a hassle to cook dried beans. I have soup beans (pinto, kidney, Navy, whatever) almost every day for lunch. About once a week, I cook up a pot starting with 2-3 cups, a ham hock or piece of ham, a chopped onion, and including a can or two of chicken broth, and water of course). It takes about ten minutes to get them going on a slow simmer, and then adding water occasionally as needed. If this becomes part of your routine, it’s very little work., for a homebody at least. I can tell where we are in the process by the smell.

  • Oh man beans! that’s another food I miss eating, I gave up eating beans back when I would low-carb but also because they caused problems in my stomach ��☹️ I never ate canned beans but I’ll give them a shot if they’re easier to digest then dried beans

  • Can you grind up beans to a powder and cook it and will it be okay to eat or will I die? if I consume it ground up and cooked will I be okay?

  • Beans no longer require many hours to cook. They only take 30 minutes in an instant pot (pressure cooker). And we don’t have to worry about bpa in the cans.

  • Soak your dry beans overnight in water, then the next day bring the beans to a boil, then simmer for a hour and a half to two hours, done! no Hassel at all.

  • What’s the legal limit for how many beans are in a can of beans? 239! Because if they put in one more, I’t would be 2 foarty!����

  • Get a stove top pressure cooker. 1 lb only 30 min to 45. Easy and flavorable. I also pc my dry beans. We store organic in can as well for those days. Dont be a lazy cook. Thsts why this country is FAT. SORRY if i offend. Spend time preparing your food.

  • I eat all kind of beans. No cooker I. I soak the beans over night, no cans for me. I have eaten all my life. Never cans. You don’t know what you are talking about. With all the preservatives and sodium.. good luck �� you are destroying the natural of cheek peace. Hommos is very natural and healthy you add fresh lemon fresh garlic and sesame butter. Good luck ��

  • I don’t get it! How many calories are in the dark red kidney beans can when two different serving sizes are listed? If you ate the entire can that is? Is it “serving size 1/2 cup” so 110+110=220 calories for a whole can. Or is it “serving about 3.5” that is (100)(3.5)=385 calories for the a whole can of kidney beans???? Am I missing something? Why two serving sizes?

  • Ok this may be a stupid question, but I’m vegan and was wandering if canned green beans are vegan if they use regular salt instead of pink or sea salt

  • When I was growing up, my mom always used dry beans. They were so good when she would add sauteed yellow onion and garlic. The shiznit!

    I usually cook with canned beans but recently bought some dried pinto beans. I would like to make some burritos with them. It seems like dry beans have less of a metallic taste than canned beans. I think dry beans overall have more flavor so I’m going to start cooking with the dry ones for now (except canned chickpeas).

  • i think it is important to buy the non-bpa cans. I bought the regular cans the other day and behold what happened  after I ate them….**ting*** that is the is the sound of my wiener going limp…bpa destroys testosterone in your body

  • Now I realize why beans is the number one food in Puerto Rican homes. I love them and can’t imagine not having them in my diet. Mom used to make them every day but now that I am on my own I don’t make them as much. Will make a pot today.

  • Dry beans definitely taste better but they really are a hassle. I usually only make them on the weekend. For weeknights after work nothing beats the can for convenience. I feel great eating a can of beans a day. I try to add at least some form every day, whether it be from a can, lentils, tofu, tempeh, tvp, etc…
