Beans are a nutrient-dense food that can be incorporated into a variety of healthy side dishes and entrees. While canned beans come at a slightly higher price per serving than dried beans, they save you hours and hours of cooking! Worried about sodium content? Purchase low sodium or no salt added canned beans; after opening, drain and rinse the beans to remove excess salt. For athletes and those that lose a lot of salt in their sweat the sodium found in canned beans can help with replacing electrolytes! Add black beans, chickpeas or kidney beans to your next salad, soup or casserole for a meal rich in protein and fiber!
