This week our assignment is adding 15lbs of Beans to our food storage.
Now, you remember the post about rice, oats and the one on grain (have I posted on grain yet? Maybe not)? Same goes for beans. You can store them in a big bucket, can them in Mason jars or seal them in mylar bags. I have all of those items in 5 gallon buckets but I have loved having them in mylar bags! Being in an earthquake zone it's nice to not worry about a jar breaking but also I can fit a mylar bag in a 5 gal bucket for a "grab n go" type of situation.
This is another one of those items that I'm like K.... IF an emergency arises and I have literally nothing else to eat I'll actually soak my beans and make something. The beans I used to have in my storage would have been just used for weighting pies and for crafts... But I want to actually learn *in a non-overwhelming way* how to use them.
Also, what do you do with so much beans?!
Momwithaprep blog points out that you can use beans for flour, hummus, bean dip, bean puree to replace butter and thicken soups, bean sprouts and smoothies!
Beans are a powerhouse of nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Heart healthy, low in fat, high in protein and fiber (promotes regularity when taken with lots of fluids), balances blood sugar, reduces risk of cancer, keeps your appetite satisfied!
Keep up the good work! You'll be glad you did! 👍☺️
