I have been eating a can with dinner 3-4 nights a week for about a month now. I love them. Great protein, fat and fiber. Aside from makig you fart and have soft **** is there any probelm with eating these? Yes they fit into my macros but are they a bead choice for food?

I looked at the back of Bush's Baked Beans and it had like 2 grams of salt in half a cup. That's insane.

Only bad thing is sodium as has been mentioned.

Getfit- how do you prepare them? I have never made raw beans but it seems like an attractive choice.

Since she's logged out, I'll share! :D

Follow directions on bag.. <_<

Last bag of dry beans I bought were pintos. I had to pre-cook/soak them for 1.5 hours or so (or you can soak them in cold water over night). Drain. Add more water up to the level suggested. Add 2-4 strips of yummy bacon, raw. Maybe a few chives if you'd like, some spices to your liking, etc. I did mine pretty plain. Just the bacon, and then part way through I added a few cups of cooked brown rice. After they were pretty much done, I took some flour and mixed it with water. Stirred it in to thicken into a soup-like consistency. Then I ate it. With tortillas. It was gewd.

One bag made an ENORMOUS amount of beans, too.. holy crap. They're like 1-2$ for a bag and it's enough to feed a large family.

Hey man, thanks! I love adding spices and things to meals so I will have a good time with this.

So just presoak and then throw them in a pot and coil them for a few hours?

Pretty much! Good luck. And don't follow my cooking directions exactly.. that's just to give you an idea of how long it will take.. approx. Definitely follow the directions for cooking on the bag.. :D

i buy bushes baked beans. dump them out in a big tupperware contianer. and then fill it with water. mix beans and water. then drain. do this 2 or 3 times and it takes out alot of the sodium and sugar in the gravy. they still taste great rinsed and much healthier.

Lots of sugar and sodium in most canned baked beans..they taste great but there are far better choices if you are serious about your diet.

Try:
Black Beans
Pinto Beans
Chick Peas
Blackeye Peas
Kidney Beans

All better choices from a nutritional point of view!!

Canned, or dry? I hate the way dry beans turn out. The canned variety is much more efficient.

I`d eat either as opposed to baked beans,they just have too much in the way of sugar and additives for my taste.
