I toss a few kidney beans on top of my salads sometimes. Good for the fiber and I like the taste as well. Usually about 1/4 cup on a salad. The black beans are good on a salad as well.

I drain and rinse them to get some of the salt off, then put them into a plastic or glass container - they should keep at least a week if your refr is cold enough. (less than 40°)

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.

Oatmeal messes with my blood sugars, and I can only handle a thin slice of bread.

Or, if you're going to do it long-term and you are concerned about spoilage/waste, you could divide up the can upon opening and freeze the individual portions in small containers.

Don't wash the beans that you're reserving, store them in the original liquid from the can, and use a glass container if possible, not plastic.

No! not that problem..lol

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?
