I have fallen out of two very good habits in the past year or so, and I decided tonight would be the night I officially get "back to it" --
Good habit #1: using my reusable produce/bulk bags when buying groceries
Good habit #2: cooking dried beans and freezing in 2-cup portions
Good habit #2 seemed especially important to me, as money has been a little tighter than usual lately, and we all know how cheap beans are to start with, and how MUCH cheaper they are when you cook them from dried. Also, I recently read an article in this month's issue of Whole Living that detailed a variety of environmental toxins that screw with female hormones. I don't have any issues, but I figure it's good to be aware and possibly avoid issues in the future, right? I'm not ready to give up canned tomatoes just yet, (and oh, how I wish the glass jars of tomatoes were cheaper!), but I figure, skipping the canned beans in favor of home-cooked is a win-win, right? And I'm taking Michelle's advice this time 'round, and cooking 'em with a chunk of kombu each.
What are your feelings and/or opinions about BPAs?
Maybe we'll have a bumper crop of Roma tomatoes in the garden this year, I'll teach myself some basic canning, and I can actually say good-bye to canned tomatoes? Fingers crossed!
