How to Shop for Healthy Foods : Eating Healthy Canned Foods


Hey there! Welcome back. More healthy food
shopping tips and you’re going to love this one. So, we’ve got our canned foods. I know
many nutritionists who are like, “Oh my God! I can’t believe she’s buying canned foods!”
But every once in a while, it is kind of a necessary thing, believe it or not. Unfortunately,
there is some bad things about canned food, and we’ll get back into that for just a second
here. Firstly, there’s a lot of things that you could buy that can actually be quite nutritious,
and they’re easy to make. Obviously your tuna and I like to buy the water chestnuts. These
are already cut up. Unfortunately they’re very difficult, hard to find in produce sections,
as well as are much more difficult to cook that way. These are already prepared and so
much easier just to open up a can. Bamboo shoots are another thing. And I love the fact
that there’s these great wild salmon, Alaskan salmon, ’cause I can make this kind of like
I would a tuna salad, which is fabulous. But the one thing that I want to steer away from
this is, if you have a background of Alzheimer’s disease, or anything like that, you kind of
want to steer away from canned foods, because the aluminum tends to leach in the food, and
if you’re sensitive to it, or if you have a background of Alzheimer’s disease, you may
want to stay away from it. Additionally, canned foods on a whole don’t have that many nutrients,
so you’re not going to get as much bang for your buck, so to speak, when you buy them.
But these are convenient, and these are the ones that I generally tend to buy. Just because,
every once in a while, it’s okay. Just as long as you buy more of the best quality,
you’re good to go. Luckily for me, I don’t have an Alzheimer’s background, but even if
you don’t, you want to make sure that you’re getting best bang for your buck. These don’t
have as many nutrients, but every once in a while, we all have to have it, right? So
just make sure you just watch out for that, and steer for your fresh produce, and your
frozen if you need more convenience and you’ll be happier and healthier.
