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)
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.
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)
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 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)
With respect to avoiding mercury in tuna, the less expensive chunk light types have significantly less mercury than solid white albacore. The small amount of tuna in my diet is the tongol tuna they sell at the healthfood store.
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
Lately, i have been too busy to cook food, so my staple is canned fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, and anchovies, some crab meat) on top of a big salad. I have been eating this for both lunch and dinner because it is fast, and pretty tasty, i love... (more)
If you are buying your canned fish at Trader Joe's then you are probably all set. Word is that all their fish is in BPA-free cans.
My brother and I were talking about eating more paleo and low-carb, and he mentioned that one thing he has trouble with is making meat dishes like casseroles without some sort of canned soup like cream of mushroom to sort of hold it all together. ... (more)
I'm getting canned coconut milk in BPA-free cans and doing my best to scrutinize ingredients lists in other canned varieties. But my largest offender is canned tomatoes. Tomatoes are A PAIN IN THE REAR for me to process manually, just because I... (more)
I always let quality, ingredients, and the container decide. Sure, I prefer fresh, but BPA cans or glass jars are ok with me.
I tried it and it was not bad - ingredient list is short :sardines, water and salt (for the non oil ones) or sardines, pure olive oil and salt. They claimed to be wild caught but the only thing that bugs me it's product of Morocco, even though the... (more)
I'd like to eat some salmon. Wild, fresh salmon does not seem to be available where I live. So What do you think is least bad? Canned wild salmon, or fresh farmed salmon? There are some separate threads about farmed salmon and canned salmon. I'd... (more)
