Home Made Baked Beans


Baked beans are one of those super nourishing recipes that is high in fibre, protein and nutrients like thiamine, zinc, iron, and selenium. These nutrients support energy production, immune health, and thyroid function in the body.


The only major drawback is that tinned versions can contain added sugar, salt, and food additives. This can all be minimised by making baked beans from scratch, which is a quick and easy recipe and the carrot and capsicum can be swapped for seasonal vegetables for some extra antioxidants and nutrients.


This recipe is great for those who are on the go but still want to enjoy a nutritious and energising breakfast. It can be meal prepped and cooked the night before and consumed for lunch with a green salad on the side.


Therefore, I wanted to share this recipe with you all so you can reap the benefits of this super tasty and nourishing meal.
