Canned food and chili recipe!


I am a member of Twitter Moms, you can find a link to their website to the right of my blog as well. They are having a contest that I have decided to enter! Here is a link to the contest and rules.

I watched a video that taught about the canned food process. It was very informative. I learned the following facts from the video:
  • As adults, we should consume 25-35 grams of fiber per day
  • There is a 7 step cleaning process to canning beans
  • Beans do not spoil
  • Beans are fat free and high in fiber
  • Canned vegetables are at their peek freshness when they are canned
  • Canned pumpkin has 3 times more vitamin A, than a fresh cooked pumpkin does
  • Don't forget to recycle your cans! They are used over and over again!

One of my favorite recipes that contains canned beans and tomatoes is my chili recipe:
