Are Canned Or Dried Beans Better For You?

How To Get Your Protein

Gals, we know we talk about this a lot. Protein. You need it with every meal. Beans are a great source of not only protein but fiber, folate, plant iron, vitamin B1, and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and copper, and are naturally low in sodium. Plus, they’re cheap!

According to this piece on Care2.com, though canned beans are still inexpensive, they cost about three times more than dried beans — but since dried beans can take hours to cook, many families opt for the more convenient choice. But the sodium content of canned beans can be 100 times that of cooked! You can drain and rinse the canned beans to get rid of about half the sodium, but you’re also draining and rinsing away some of the nutrition.

So! If you can, prepare dried beans. And if you do buy canned beans, get the no-salt-added varieties, and keep the bean juice.

Be Strong, Ladies!

Get Strong

It’s okay to cry, we all do it. But they say that real strength is fighting the hardest when you’re feeling the weakest. Have your moment by yourself, let it all out, or have your moment with your closest friends, but then move on — and don’t let the people who want to keep you down, see you falter.

Healthy High-Protein Snacks

We found this great list at Greatist.com! Eat protein with every meal, and throughout the day! Protein fills you up, and helps create mood-boosting serotonin in your body! Here’s just a few of the some of the great snacks they listed, read more here! Stay curvy with Curvy Diet supplements and butt-plumping cream!

1) Pumpkin Seeds: Those orange gourds aren’t just for Halloween. The pumpkin insides, scooped out to make room for spooky faces, can actually make a healthy little snack once they’re washed, dried, and nicely roasted! Just ½ cup of pumpkin seeds has about 14 grams of protein — the perfect pre-workout snack that helps burn fat!

2) Deli Rollup: Top 2 slices of low-sodium deli meat (turkey, chicken, or roast beef work great!) with 1 slice of lowfat cheese and a shake of pepper. Add a slice of tomato or some lettuce for extra veggie points!

3) Hard-Boiled Egg: Inexpensive and loaded with nutrients, eggs are one of the best ways to get a healthy dose of protein. Try hard boiling and pre-peeling a dozen at the start of the week and throw one in a small Tupperware container each day for an easy on-the-go snack. (Feeling extra famished? Slice the egg and place it on a piece of whole-wheat bread.)

More Flexible Better Sex

Grrrllll….we were searching for a stretch that would help us, um, open our legs wider and we found this gem on Health.com’s “The Better Sex Workout.”

Lie facedown on the floor with two rolled-up towels supporting your pelvis and thighs and your arms reaching out in front of you. Bend arms and legs at 90-degree angles, into a position that resembles a frog. Hold for 3 minutes, then release.

Once we did each side, we went ahead and tried to pull up both of our legs at 90-degree angles as the same time…AHHH!!!! FEEL THE BURN!! We’ll get there — we feel more “loose” down there already, ha ha.
