Anytime I decide to make something myself I’m faced with issues of cost of materials, energy, and time. How much am I really saving when I make something myself? Well, if done right, a whole lot actually!
I love beans. There are to me a magical food filled with protein and fiber. Low in fat and sugar they make a great protein source in many types of meals. You can mix them into salads, stir fries, casseroles, stews, and of course chili!
