A few days ago, I posted about cooking dried beans. But canned beans are also a solid option. In fact, they’re one of the best “fast foods” you can get your hands on. If available, buy beans in cans labeled “BPA Free.” Also, since most beans are canned with a boatload of sodium, dump them in a colander and give them a thorough rinse before using. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, this cuts the sodium content down by 40 percent. Plus, who likes that “gunky” liquid anyways?
