The Everyday Food Storage Beans E-Cookbook


Don’t you just L-O-V-E beans? Do you get stumped when thinking about what you can make with the beans in your food storage-besides a lot of chili? Are you not eating your three servings of beans a week that the National Dietetic Association recommends? Would you like to eat more fiber and protein instead of fat?


If you answered YES to any of these questions, then this e-cookbook is for YOU! Did you know that beans give you a lot of bang for your buck. They are low in cost, cholesterol free, low in fat, and high in fiber, protein, carbohydrate, folate, and many trace minerals. According to the Idaho Bean Commission, “Each half-cup serving of dry beans provides six to seven grams of protein, meets at least 10% of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein, yet costs about 20 cents per serving.”


Because it’s hard to think of ways to get those beans in our diet, I mean really you can only eat so much Mexican food and chili for dinner and when you think of having those three times a week it’s….well…blah.


The Every Day Bean e-Cookbook offers a very WIDE range of recipes including breakfasts, sides and salads, dinners, and desserts (yes, even desserts!) that will get you using beans every day and teach you how to successfully incorporate beans into your OWN recipes!


Question: “Woah, back up…did you just say beans in desserts?
Answer:  YES! It’s true, you can easily replace butter and oil in baked goods with your beans.  There is no bean flavor to taste, promise!  It does, however, add moisture, fiber, and protein.  It’s also great for people with Type 2 Diabetes.  When I bake for my dad I love to do this because it helps his body digest the sugar better.

Question: “This sounds a lot like using applesauce-why would I start using beans when you can use applesauce the same way?”
Answer:  It’s simple really, if you’ve tried adding applesauce to brownies-you’ve probably noticed that it tastes like apple flavored brownies.  For me, personally, if I’m going to spend the calories on something like brownies it better taste like chocolate…and just chocolate.   The beans don’t change the flavor of how the baked good is SUPPOSED TO TASTE.  Also, applesauce (even unsweetened) has a lot of sugar.  The beans have very little sugar but are jam packed with FIBER and PROTEIN.  I can promise that you will actually feel FULL after eating a brownie or piece of cake made with beans instead of oil.

Question: “Well what about the dinner recipes, is it just a bunch of Chili/Soup and Mexican recipes?”
Answer: I realize that the first thing you think of when you think of a dinner with beans is a Chili/Soup or Mexican recipe so I went out of my way to put in out of the box ideas for dinner.  And for you chili lovers, don’t worry I have a couple of those for you too…but they aren’t the typical chili that you can buy in a can.

Question: “What type of beans did you focus on for this e-cookbook?”
Answer: I focused on the three easiest and most common types of beans in food storage: Pinto, White and Black beans.

Question: “How did you set this e-cookbook up?”
Answer: I set it up very similar to my Every Day Menu Planner.  It’s meant to be printed, put in page protectors and then in a binder.  That way you can have it as a working cookbook.  Feel free to change around the order and to add in your own successful recipes.  (If you already have my Every Day Menu Planner, you can easily just add this Every Day Bean Cookbook to it!)

Question: “So, how many recipes are we talking about?”
Answer: There are 90+ recipes in the four categories (breakfasts, sides & salads, dinners, and desserts) and each category is further divided into subcategories to keep everything organized for you.

Question: “Are the recipes simple to make and delicious to taste?”
Answer: You know they are!  I’m a busy mom like you and I don’t have a lot of extra time, but I can promise that these recipes are simple, the techniques doable, and they taste fabulous plus they will help you rotate your food storage!

Question: “Will the recipes also use other food storage items, or just beans?” 
Answer: Of course!  If you can use food storage in other areas of the recipes, I’ve told you just how to do it!

Question: “Do you have helpful charts and tips in the beginning so I can learn how to use beans in my own recipes?”
Answer: YES!  You know me, I’m all about teaching you how to use food storage in your OWN recipes.  So I have essential tips for making you successful at using beans in your own recipes and a chart that will help you know what amount of dry beans to use in a recipe that calls for a can of beans.

Question: “Will I be receiving this in the mail?”
Answer: No, the beauty of an e-cookbook is that you don’t have to wait for it!  After you purchase the book, you’ll receive an email with a link to DOWNLOAD the book.

    Help. I’m a big goober and just downloaded this on my ipad. While that is fine and dandy for looking at, I’d really like to have a hard copy and have no idea how to print it from my ipad or transfer it to my computer for printing. Help??

    You can download it again to a computer to print!

    I’m going to purchase this for myself and I’ve got a question regarding distribution. But first, I was SO excited to stumble upon this site! I’ve been planning an activity for food storage prep and preparedness and your site has helped more than you can imagine. :) Anyway my question is, if I buy the $12 copy for myself now, can I still get the $3 large group rate in September? Because I know after I share this information copies will be requested. I plan to collect the funds then place the order myself, but I will give them the option to get their open e-copy for $12 like I am going to do.

    Yes! You just need to have purchased it first.
