Yes, tend towards bpa-free though (imo).
Ok, so I am fairly new to paleo and have only recently been trying out new recipes. Before I was only modifying my go-to meals and cutting out anything that had flour. I have to say that the change has been AMAZING... I'm down nearly 30 lbs, with... (more)
Hi Guys, Just wondering what you prefer with regards to canned tuna? Albacore, Yellowfin, or Skipjack (last 2 are known as light tuna i believe). I know that albacore has more omega 3s, but is higher in mercury generally. However some chunk... (more)
I love canned fish - tuna, sardines, salmon. But whenever I eat it I can get heartburn. Just wondering if anyone has the same experience. It is interesting also to discuss why this might happen. BPA? Oxidized PUFA? Adding a bit more info: This... (more)
There are many, many Paleo recipes that call for canned tomatoes however most of them have sugar and stuff like calcium chloride. Why is this acceptable in the Paleo world?
The lunch that I usually make for school most days (not all) is half a can of bumblebee's wild alaskan salmon, plus chopped pickles, celery, onions, and homemade mayo if I have any on hand. Otherwise I use pickle juice. I mostly make this because... (more)
I'm obsessed with palm hearts (I can only get them canned). But once in a while after eating them I get bad gas, and I think the gas smells like these palm hearts! Could they be the culprits then? Should I avoid them? They are too delicious!!! (more)
Palm Hearts are a great vegetable for a Paleo/Primal diet. Decent fiber. Even a little protein. A good source of Potassium, along with some moderate Zinc. Best to avoid in a can, unless you know it is BPA-free. I get mine in glass jars at Trader... (more)
So I recently got back from a trip to Hawaii where Spam is eaten like crazy. I had never tried Spam before, but now I find myself craving it. Looking at the nutrition information, it seems to check out alright, at least not much worse than most... (more)
So, I've 15oz of canned wild pink salmon. I'm looking for some creative eating ideas. Preferably things I could take to work and eat during break. If it travels, that's a bonus. Right now I was just thinking of taking a half can of the salmon... (more)
Mix it with mashed avocado, salt, pepper, garlic, and green onion. Eat with celery sticks. I don't particularly care for salmon, but I have to portion this out for myself or I will go crazy.
Hey, I've noticed that quite a few people here eat canned salmon, sardines, etc. I wouldn't mind doing the same but am kinda concerned about metal leaching from the can to the fish. Anyone know anything about the subject that can put my mind at ease? (more)
I was hit with this idea while eating some of my canned salmon today. I usually open the can and pour out the water in order to eat the fish. Now that I think about it if this is the same water the fish was cooked in and it contains bones (mine... (more)
I know that in North America there seem to be one or two brands such selling BPA free tins but in the UK I have checked far and wide and it seems to be that no one is doing it? I have pretty much accepted that I will have to start making my own... (more)
Looking for any information out there on the saftey of using canned foods. Being on a low income and from a busy background, it is often easier and cheaper to buy some canned foods. The only two I regulary consume is a diced italian tomato mix,... (more)
Trying again to answer. Technical difficulties. Quick answer -- canned salmon is okay, actually quite good given where you live. Canned tomatoes -- not bad if you have no alternative but BOXED would be much better. Acid in tomatoes, specifically,... (more)
Are these still quality food items? I just bought a couple cans of the bumblebee whole oysters and they actually taste pretty good. One other question though... in cooked oysters, are they usually dark green inside? I've only had oysters like... (more)
Is this a good thing to eat? I've been trying lots of new seafood recently and the tinned octopus looked like an interesting option for keeping around in my desk at work with my other snack-ish foods. I really liked the tinned oysters but trying... (more)
Man, I've never had tinned octopus! But fresh octopus is really nice. I liken it to a "meatier" version of squid. If you like squid you would definitely be down with the flavour.
So these are no salt added products. But in order to preserve they use potassium instead. My question is that would this be a good way to get you potassium/sodium ratio into balance and is there a pot/sod ratio that is too high?
Green beans are legumes and most people don't eat legumes on a paleo diet. Frozen vegetables are better than canned vegetables. Your body will tell you when you potassium/sodium ratio is too high by making salty water taste really good.
I was searching ways to eat within my budget, and came across a paleo article that suggested canned fish. I am looking primarily into sardine, anchovies, salmon, scallops, oysters, but seriously any sea food/protein is fine. I follow this guide... (more)
How is corned beef any worse than bacon? Roughly same ingredients. Bef vs. pork. The only other difference is it comes in a can vs. being packaged. If bacon is ok with you, then corned beef is kosher, too.
I see lots of recipes calling for coconut milk (Marks Daily Apple, Everyday Paleo cookbook, etc...). They never specify if it is the canned stuff or the one I can find in the refrigerated alternatives to cows milk section? When I make shakes which... (more)
Pretty much downing a can every two days; I know anything canned is pretty much post-agriculture and post-industrial but it's sooooo good! Seriously look at these specs: (more)
