    They're pretty decent for filler, but not as a sole source of protein.

    If you process the dry beans properly they won't make you fart, so there's that. Apparently that chemical process also makes them more nutrient bio-available but I have no idea.

      And what is the "proper" way to process them?

        Soaking them in a solution of baking soda and salt overnight. Cleaning afterwards obviously.

    theres barely any hassle, so yes
    cost wise, they're incredible and all you need to do is soak overnight and then boil(or pressure cook), their preparation is almost entirely hands off time
    >for protein
    they're carbs with a little bit of protein, not a protein source like coping vegetarians/vegans pretend they are

      Canned tuna.
      Spam.
      Eggs in a water/lye solution.
      Beef dried or canned (good lord but yes it happens)

      Like it or not those are the answers.

        Also I'm pretty sure you can't store store-bought eggs in lye, they lack the membrane that protects them from the chemical.

        Wow I can't believe beans are worthless
        I wish I could buy cheap meat
        But I'm not allowed to eat meat I think
        Is offal the cheapest meat you can get
        From what animal

          They're not worthless, they're simply not as effective a source of protein as animal products are. We're carnivore-biased omnivores. Vegans take bigger shits because that's mass your body can't digest. We don't have the digestive processors that herbivores.

            agreed, my biggest fear is that i'll have a vegan girlfriend because ik she's in the right morally and i can't defend eating meat except maybe that humans kill more... humanely than other predators that might just rip you limb from limb alive. And if I get a vegan girlfriend ik the pussy will not taste good and be dry af 🙁

        also idk ANYTHING about lye storage that sounds scary as frick

        m-membranes???

        >cost-wise
        Yes dumbass, they're cheap as shit and you just need to boil with seasoning. Canned is faster, but you're paying half of it for just the water and the flavors always weaker.

        Yes, I know they're cheap. I definitely phrased it wrong because I don't normally post and had to confront the multiple bot filters (also i tried to post from incognito which ofc did not work).
        Canned raw beans look gross. I definitely prefer canned chili or already seasoned beans (ranch style brings me to my childhood)

        1 can of beans lasts me 3 meals. I'm not going through the trouble to cook a small amount of dry beans, and I have no desire to cook a large amount of beans.

        This is also a really good answer. Efficiency and experience married in a frick it i'm sorry i just watched the second lord of the rings movie.

        ??? Nah beans aren't worthless. I'm beginning to realize that my parents raised me with very cost-effective, easily-prepared, and nutritiously dense food. Tradition really does have a role in life lol
        Also yeah I wish i could buy meat in bulk but i don't have money for a chest freezer. I wonder if hunting would be a good solution once I have money for a big freezer.

        Needs to have some sort of meat, also where are your greens? Sad to see that you're not based and spinachpilled

        Anyways yeah dry beanz are a fine investment. Soaking is a meme imo, just give them a good shvitz in the sink and you're good to plap them in the slow cooker for a few hours with some conecuh sausage, diced tomatoes, onions, and chopped celery.

        Greens are growing in a tiny bucket that i hammered holes into on the porch. I like green onions for garnish on the aforementioned chicken and rice. Also, multivitamins have largely staved off anemia for me even though I often disregard the no-iron-with-calcium rule and take it with milk instead of orange juice. Man, why is orange juice kind of expensive? I can't buy in too large a quantity because it'd spoil, and even regular oranges are kinda expensive. I used to work for jamba juice, and they would store orange juice in the freezer until the refrigerated oj needed replacing. it was probably a concentrated oj too, so that's a factor. Yes, iirc we had to water it down when we put it in the machine. FRICK IT i'm gonna buy regular orange juice and see how long it lasts for the iron absorption gainz.

          Eggs in the US are processed in such a way that the membrane that usually surrounds a chicken egg is broken down. That very membrane is what protected them in preservation in lye for I guess, a couple centuries prior to that? People still do it obviously, and they're usually kept in an area similar to a wine cellar.

          In the middle ages they'd have a stone floor and routinely go in there and 'mop' so that the moisture on the floor evaporated and cooled the room. This was usually done in the summer.

    Yes. They taste better than canned beans and are like an eighth of the cost per calorie. The "hassle" is almost entirely passive.
