It depends on the bean. Pinto and cranberry beans, lentils, and navy beans I buy dry. But black and kidney beans I buy canned.

Canned....because I am lazy, I don't prep well in advance, & I would forget about soaking the beans.

I like dried beans best. I've gotten into the habit of preparing them every week and like to have cornbread or tostada shells with them, and chopped onions and bell peppers.

Canned. Because I know me. I'm not going to think enough in advance to soak them overnight.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

Dry. Cheaper.
Soak overnight..or even during day and cook in evening/morning-
Put in crock pot/instant pot and done.
Plus I can batch cook so I have them ahead of time...also they taste better-esp with a bay leaf /spices during cooking and I can control the sodium better than cans.

Canned. They are easier for me. I rarely plan my meals in advance. Plus I do not have a ton of time to cook.

It really depends on what I am making. I use each for different things.

I love how convenient canned beans are, but red lentils and soup beans I always use dried....now I am hungry for a bowl of lentil soup!

I love dried beans. I make a pot of bean every 4 days. I usually alternate between black beans and pinto beans, because this is what my mom and I prefer on our tostadas. I have a pressure cooker I use called an InstantPot. I just throw in the dried beans (rinsed), veggie broth, spices, and mirepoix from Trader Joes. It takes a couple of hours to cook because the InstantPot has to pressurize and depressurize and I cook them under pressure for 45 minutes. I don’t have to soak the beans and I don’t have to monitor the InstantPot, it has the convenience of a crockpot except much faster. My mom says the tostadas I make are the best ever, and they have no salt.
