Yes, I know they are black beans, but did you see the container?
Finally someone has come up with an alternative to canned beans!
I found these at my local Whole Foods in Chicago. Whole Foods saves the day again!
Looks like they are selling a couple of varieties. I saw chickpeas, black beans, and kidney beans.
In case you are wondering why I have a bone to pick with canned beans, it’s because of the BPA. This chemical is often used in the lining of cans and in plastics. BPA is a known endocrine disruptor, meaning that it messes with our hormones, mainly estrogen. It’s a good idea to stay away from this chemical whenever possible.

That’s all for today! Have a good one!
