Looking for ways to put healthy meatless meals together in minutes? Reach for the canned beans. Traditional cooks soak dried beans overnight before cooking them. But when you’re in a hurry, canned beans are a great convenience. And they deliver plenty of inexpensive protein as well as fiber. Include canned cannellini beans, pinto beans, black beans, or chick peas (garbanzo beans) in your weekday meals. Get into the habit of always draining them in a colander and rinsing them well under cold water to remove as much sodium as possible.
