Jackie's Health Tip of the Week 9/11/16

Save money by cooking your own beans, peas and lentils!  You can buy a whole bag of dried beans, peas, and lentils, and cook up what you need. Or, you can spend twice the money to get them canned. Cooking them yourself just requires a little advance planning, since you need to soak them overnight or put them in a slow cooker. Canned food usually contains way more sodium than we want or need! I really found this page from Whole Foods helpful. It breaks down all sorts of different types of beans and explains how to prepare and cook them.
