Meatless Monday and Canned Foods

For this one, you have to plan a bit ahead of time since beans have to be soaked. Unless canned beans are used....which in that case no future planning is needed. Although I would suggest to plan ahead and skip the can. Following is the recipe and then below that is some info about canned foods....please research and be informed.

Red Kidney Bean & Kale Salad

1 cup soaked and cooked red kidney beans
1 bunch of kale, steamed
1 cup of almond meal
1/2 daikon root, shredded
6 green onions, chopped
2 tsp. chili powder

Mix all together, season with salt and pepper and eat your creation!

Canned Foods: The lining of most metal cans has a thin plastic liner that contains bisphenol-A. Bisphenol-A, or BPA, is a chemical thought to increase the risk of infertility, cancer, diabetes, and even heart disease. Although the focus has been on BPA in plastic products, eating canned foods may provide just as much exposure to BPA as drinking out of plastic bottles or using plastic containers '" maybe more. What are the effects of bisphenol-A in canned foods and why should you avoid them?????
