It’s so weird being a blogger during the Coronavirus pandemic.  I’ve had Easter and spring content (recipes, gift guides, gardening) planned and scheduled for weeks, and part of me has wondered if I should just pull it at this point.  But I want to try and maintain a sense of normalcy around here.  I mean, eventually the dust has to settle.  Right?

So in between those scheduled posts that might not be entirely fitting to our current situation, I’m going to try and publish content that can help make things easier during this crazy time.  Especially when it comes to using what we’ve got so we don’t have to worry about making trips to the grocery store!

We’ve been extremely thankful for our Hungryroot deliveries, but eventually we’ll have to go to the store for some of our everyday essentials.  In the meantime, I’ve taken inventory of our fridge and freezer and I’m trying to make damn sure that we use up every last morsel of food in this house before we have to resort to grocery shopping.

15 Recipes You Can Make with a Can of Beans

Thankfully, we have a decent supply of pantry staples in the house right now. When the Coronavirus first started making headlines, I picked up some canned beans just to have on hand.  At that time, we really didn’t know how bad things were going to get.  But now that things are what they are, I could hug those little cans of black beans, chickpeas, cannellini beans, and red kidney beans!

Beans not only have a great list of health benefits tied to them (and they’re especially a great source of protein), they are an easy way to bulk up any meal!  If you need some new ideas for canned beans, I’m sharing 15 of them with you.  These include everything from breakfast, easy lunches and dinners, snacks, and even dessert!  I hope these will inspire you while we’re all toughing it out at home!
