Default Pantry full of dried beans!!

They were on sale and just couldn't justify NOT buying them! I am dieting, right? I was thinking about doing this today, so help would be greatly appreciated.

This is my question: If I soak and cook them, will freezing cause the texture to change? Hubby thinks so, but I don't.

If freezing is ok, for how long? I tend to forget what I have in there!

I would also like to have the nutritional info on various types of beans. Could someone direct me?

When my mom makes bean soup she always makes extra and freezes it. it makes a quick easy dinner and to me it tastes and feels the same. She freezes it up to a few months. Once you thaw them out though, remember to just warm them up and not over cook. also once they are frozen and unthawed i wouldnt reccomend refreezing. as for nutritional data have you tried something like thedailyplate.com ? good luck
