Healthier baked beans
As many of you know, two of my favorite meals are beans with rice and a sweet potato covered in baked beans!
However, when I started the 30 Day whole foods challenge, I knew there had to be a better choice out there than the usual baked beans I buy, which contain a lot of sugar (both brown and regular) and sodium.
Aside from making them myself, I found the next best thing! Healthier canned baked beans 🙂
These beans are made with the following ingredients: Organic Navy Beans, Water, Organic Sorghum, Organic Tomato Puree, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic Mustard Seed, Organic Onion, Organic Spices, Sea Salt.
They contain significantly less sugar (6g as opposed to 12, per serving) and sodium (130 mg vs. 550)!
These Eden beans also have slightly more protein and fiber. It took a little getting used to at first because I was so hooked on the “sweet” taste of the Bush’s beans, but now that I’ve had these a few times, I prefer them — plus you can’t beat the nutritional upgrade!
But, for my health and peace of mind, it was well worth it.
