  1. TINNED INGREDIENTS

    Thanks laura-juggles - very interesting. I have been reading a few articles about canned v fresh - all very informative and interesting! Thanks.
  2. TINNED INGREDIENTS

    I am being too sensitive to peoples comments I guess - I thought others were upset and thought that I was saying they were "too poor" to get fresh over canned. My error. :-) I shouldn't have used the word sneaky when referring to additives, as yes, they do have to label what is in the can of goods. In my experience there is usually added sodium and sugar in most cases - sometimes soy which for me personally is a no no. I will still continue to choose fresh over canned, I guess it is a personal choice. I was just interested to see that they used canned goods in the diet plan. I have never experienced this in any diet plan I have followed in the past. As I said in a previous response, I would like to know more about nutrition and this seems like a good place to find out more from people in the know.

    Thanks slc_melissa. I am interested in nutrition and would like to know more. Could you elaborate on "it depends". I have always been led to believe that fresh is more beneficial than canned due to additives and other issues. I am really interested to know more about all this. Thanks.

    Whoa - sorry everyone - I didn't realise I had touched a sore spot here. My post was about not liking canned goods due to the additives and that in my opinion fresh is far better for you than canned. I did not mean to start a debate about the affordability of goods. I am doing the whole 30 for health reasons and do think that canned goods are not always that healthy. Obviously wrong diet and site for me! My apologies I did not mean to offend anyone.

    I disagree Laura - there are certainly sneaky additives in canned goods. Canned is acceptable if you can't find fresh does not come across as "sorry you're poor". I have lived in areas in Africa where all I could get were canned goods at certain times. I will choose fresh when and if I can get it.

    I totally agree. I was just surprised to see canned goods as the main ingredients. I would have expected them to use fresh ingredients, and then say, "however, if you cannot get fresh, canned salmon/potatoes/tuna etc are acceptable to use". Because of where I have lived and grown up, I have never seen canned sweet potatoes, for example.

    Thanks kbart64 - that is my opinion on canned foods too. So many sneaky additives - I can understand that it is convenient and I am lucky enough to be able to buy fresh every day if I choose to.

    My partner and I have recently started the whole 30 diet, and I chose to start off with the salmon and sweet potato fish cakes. I was very surprised that you use tinned products. I chose to use fresh salmon and sweet potato and it was superb. I noticed a few other tinned ingredients in some of the other recipes. I do not use anything out of a tin - is it not more beneficial to use fresh?
