You understand that canned foods have BPA, right?
What is BPA?
Or put simply, it’s a chemical found in hard plastics and cans and wreaks havoc on your endocrine system.
Chances are, you probably heard about BPA 8-10 years ago. The most publicized offenders at the time were items such as plastic sports water bottles (Nalgene), baby bottles, and sippy cups.
Well, what you may or may not know is that it is extremely common in the lining of cans as well.
No doubt I rely on canned products like every household. Especially being that much of my meal planning involves the use of canned beans. In a perfect world, I would buy dry beans and cook them up myself, but that is not happening anytime soon.
What you and I can do is be pickier about our canned beans because there are some companies that offer BPA-free products
For today’s “Small changes…” I just want to tell you about two companies that have BPA-free canned beans.
1) Eden Organic Beans
Worth it to pay the tiny bit extra for Eden brand canned beans.
Check out their commitment here: Eden foods
2) Trader Joe’s Beans
Remember, good health does not happen over night. Start with small grocery changes such as purchasing BPA-free products . This will eventually add up to good, long-term health for you and your family.
