It's winter and I've been getting some frozen greens such as brocolli and brussels sprouts. I just hate frozen spinach though. What do 'yall think about canned spinach? I usually eat it cooked anyway (typically sauteed in olive oil with garlic,... (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)
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)
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 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)
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 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)
It's wild caught, has bones (calcium), tons of protein and omega 3s, and comes in a bpa-free can. It also costs under $3 for a can. I go through millions of these
I know generally frozen fruit and vegetables are better than the "fresh" (but not so fresh) ones sitting out, but how about canned vs. frozen produce? Also, canned meat vs. frozen meat vs. "fresh" meat? Which one is a better option? (more)
