Dried are cheaper and you control sodium. Canned are very convenient and I buy all sodium free from Whole Foods. There are some great websites out there. Try " My Vegan Journal " on Facebook and her web site! Good luck on your journey! Mary
I've used both, I only buy canned occasionally because the other ones are less expensive.

I use both canned and dry....canned are convenient so i do use them...but theres something satisfying about creating a meal after you have soaked and cook beans so i do that too!!! Are you vegan or vegetarian? Its my understanding that vegetarian can use dairy products, good souces of calcium. Here is a site with calcium rich foods...i know it does include dairy and fish but it also has calcium rich vegan appropriate foods!! www.iofbonehealth.org/patients-public/abou t-osteoporosis/prevention/nutrition/ca lcium-rich-foods.html
Hope this helps some!! Holly

I seem to have a tough time getting to meet my goals in the calcium and carbohydrate category. I also see on my nutrition page a lot of use of beans. I love eating them, and use canned beans for ease of use.Are dried beans better? Any tips appreciated.
We all need friends, so today can I show myself friendly?
