Tips and Strategies to Pull Off Homemade Beans from Scratch!

Beans are a clean eating staple and also one of the last holdbacks because they just seem so complicated. It is so easy to grab a can of beans. How bad are they, really? They are definitely not the worst of the canned food line-up, but cooking your own in a slow cooker is really quite easy. Invest in some stackable meal prep containers, and you can freeze them in individual servings. You can then store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and in freezer (in their liquid) for longer.

Here is the info on how to cook beans from scratch.
