Not Homemade: Rice & Beans

Despite the title of my blog, I do not make everything homemade.  I don’t always have the time.  So there are some products I like to keep on hand for quick lunches or dinners when I don’t have time to make something.

Recently I discovered this gem:  Eden Organic canned rice & beans.  There are a few different flavors.

I’ve also tried the Caribbean style.  These are soooo delicious.  All you do is open the can, dump in a bowl, heat and eat.  I like to eat mine with tortillas.  And the best part is, there’s no crap in it!  All natural goodness right here:

There’s nothing in there that I can’t pronounce and nothing that I don’t know what it is.  Perfecto!  These would be really good to keep in my desk at work for emergencies.

This can cost me $1.79 at Whole Foods (before tax).  If I have other things to eat it lasts me two lunches.  But I’ve been known to eat the entire can in one sitting.  That’s a pretty decent price on lunch considering it’s a convenience item.

What is your favorite prepared or prepackaged (but all natural!) food for busy days?
