    Canned beans

    Hi all, I'm wondering if you guys are regular users of canned beans. Since I started attending these forums I made quite a few changes to my diet and one of'em is eating regularly legumes, after the overwhelming evidence of their beneficial properties. Digestibility issues have been worked out by now. Problems deriving from lenghty preparation remain, even if they can be cooked on weekends. It takes some additional work though and fridge room, plus you must eat all week the same batch. So my routine now is to eat canned beans. The simplest version: beans, water and salt. They are usualy very well cooked, better than I could do myslef, they come in many varieties, organic and not organic, they come from domestic crops, they are incredibly quick to prepare and sometimes unbelievably unexpensive. they come in small containers (10 ounces drainedweight) so are usually eaten soon after opening and not kept in the fridge. Once in a while I'll cook some ancestral legumes which are sold in health food stores at very high prices. But mainly I'm eating canned beans now. I'm curious to know if you guys do the same and can find any major drawbacks to canned beans. Dr. Michael Greger is a fan of canned beans and he convinced me at the end.
