Did You Know

More about beans. Some of you love 'em. Some of you hate 'em. But did you know, a can or kettle of soup costs two to four dollars and contains two to four servings. A small package of navy beans costs a dollar and change, and contains thirteen servings. They are a good source of calcium, fiber, protein, iron and potassium.

Beans are cheap and cheerful. I like them, but don't eat too many for various reasons! Hugs, Valerie

I enjoy beans especially on toast.
Have a great Thursday,

Yvonne.

They taste pretty damn good too. I have even (finally) convinced my vegetable averse partner to eat and enjoy them.

Natalia said...

I like beans, very healthy☺

Hi Sandra - I love beans ... but try to limit my intake ... at the moment I'm trying to arrange for someone to bring me fresh broad beans - those I love too! Take care ... Hilary

Hot guys said...

I had no idea. 🤷‍♂️ Awesome stuff, thanks for sharin'! 😃

CJ Kennedy said...

Beans, beans, the magical fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you feel. Now, you're ready for another meal 😺

While I like broad beans and green beans, I am a little alarmed and alert about navy beans.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

It makes more sense that the bag of uncooked beans is a better bargain.

Birgit said...

That’s a good bargain but I don’t care for these beans. I like the green and yellow beans. Besides, the toots that come after eating beans that my hubby shares with me can melt the paint off the walls

I love Rick's bean soup. You're right about the cost of soup versus making it!

Sandra Cox said...

I bet Rick makes delicious bread or cornbread to go with it:)

Sandra Cox said...

What a great way of describing them. FYI: Baking soda, if it doesn't errupt in the pan, heh, helps offset some of the more negative effects:)

Christine said...

I ma trying to eat more beans.

A large package of beans (or lentils) is even cheaper. I like to make 9 bean soup. I have enough to last at least a week and I only use a small amount of each bean or lentil when I make them. I agree they are truly inexpensive and make a great bean soup. Changing the herbs or spices in each pot ensures you don't get tired of the same old, same old, too.

It's probably a lot lower in sodium as well. I make pea soup and macaroni and bean.

I learned to love green beans this winter. Carol sometimes brings home soul food. I have not learned to love other beans, but ya never know what might happen in the future.

Love,
Janie

Sandra Cox said...

Thumbs up to that:)

Sandra Cox said...

Baking soda takes care of that.

Sandra Cox said...

Ooh, that sounds yummy, Yvonne:)

Sandra Cox said...

Good on you! :)

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed they are, Natalia:)

Sandra Cox said...

Broad beans. Limas? Yum.

Pat Hatt said...

I just want a beanstalk

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds delish. I'll bring the cornbread and be right over:)

Sandra Cox said...

Ooh. That sounds good, True.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, HG. Glad you liked it:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh.

Sandra Cox said...

Are broad beans, limas? Hilary used that term too.

Sandra Cox said...

Definitely:)

Sandra Cox said...

That's for sure. I've started eating foods I ignored most of my life.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Good one.
