Baked beans

Baked beans are very cheap, got a good 20g of protein and 60g of carbs per can, and taste great, but how "clean" are they, or rather, healthy?

I know the whole "its the whole diet that counts", the diet is fine, but what would you rate baked beans as a healthy food? Or is it just junk?

    Yeah - go for the low-sugar/salt beans. I think the sauce is only the slightly unhealthy part because of it's sugar content.

    Ravioli is junk food really, not near as good a food as beans. A piece of pasta, with processed meat inside it.

    Im not a huge fan of beans really..they are certainly not a bad food by any means, but not a staple part of my bodybuilding diet plans.

    See too many ppl eating beans on toast and thinking its a great BBers meal.when to me it isnt

    The protein listed isnt complete protein.....and I know protein can be combined etc to become complete but I still feel a meal based around baked beans is a very distant second to a meal based around lean meat or oily fish etc

    Yes the beans should be a side if used not the main focus.If your going to have tommy sauce anyhow then have the beans unless your on a serious cut.

    sainsburys organic baked beans are my favourite one. Always good to have some cans in the cupboard as a back up.

    low sugar salt ones are horrible IMO. Beans are a great fiberous carb source.

    as said above, they aren't a complete source of protein, i.e. they dont contain the full set of amino acids, i'm having them at the moment with wholegrain pasta and a piece of chicken.

    There's nothing like Hienz beans on toast once in a while. A bit of sugar and salt aint gonna kill you. If your that anal with your diet, you could use the extra fibre.
