Why is the fat content of canned salmon like 1%... and the salmon fillets are like 30%... :(

A lot of canned salmon is wild caught. Farmed salmon are MUCH fattier than wild. The canned salmon I buy certainly isn't 1% fat, though...

How much omega 3 do you lose if you drain all that water/oil the fish is packed in?

Dan_29 0 · January 14, 2013 at 1:34 AM

You probably lose some things in addition to omega 3s, too, since the fish is cooked in the liquid in the canning process. Amino acids, minerals, vitamins. There's stuff in it. Can we put a number to it? No. Is it significant? Depends on what you... (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?

I don't see why people even use canned tomatoes. Slicing and dicing 4-5 tomatoes takes 2 minutes you could save, but if you're already cooking, it's time you would otherwise spend waiting or doing something else related to cooking. Fresh tomatoes... (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)

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.

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.

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.
