I can't eat beans, just far too high in carbs for me. But when I used to eat them I would buy them dry, soak for 8 hours, then simmer on low for about 2 hours. They are far less expensive that way and you can easily make 10-20 portions and put in the freezer. This also avoids the BPA in the plastic lining of the cans. Birgit

26) So I do not run without a goal. I fight like a boxer who is hitting something—not just the air. 27) I treat my body hard and make it my slave so that I myself will not be disqualified after I have preached to others. 1 Corinthians 9
I have decided to up my carbs some, and oatmeal and a high fiber slice of bread didn't work..lol. So I am going to eat beans in a chili 2 days a week.
It is easiest for me to buy a can of No Salt chili beans, and this is 3.5 servings @ 1/2 a cup each serving. Of course half the can is .875 cups, which has 37 grams of carbs. I don't want to eat the whole can, which has 74 grams of carbs.
So if I open up the can on Sunday for chili, and the other day I eat higher carb is Wednesday, will the chili beans spoil by then? How do I keep them fresh from Sunday till Wednesday?
