List of 4 Canned Foods to Have for Critical Times

In times when Covid-19 is all over the world, there’s nothing secure and we are basically on pins and needles, it’s definitely a good idea to have some stock at home. And by “stock” we mean food! What’s the best way to have food that you know for sure is not going to go bad? Of course, it’s canned food. There are many myths about products in preserve jars, but most of them aren’t true anyway. As a matter of fact, there are lots of cases when canned foods from the market have better quality than the ones people prepare by themselves. Here’s a list of 4 preserved foods that you should probably have to stock up on. Just in case something like Coronavirus locks you up!
  1. Grains and legumes
Whether it’s chickpeas, lentils, beans or whatever, it’s a must-have in any kitchen. First of all, these kinds of foods are super simple and you can have them literally for any day of the week. Secondly, both grains and legumes can be quite rich in proteins, carbs and fibers. By taking canned chickpeas or beans you might experiment and cook whatever dish you like. They can even turn into the dream salad!
  1. Vegetables
Do you remember our blog post about fresh or frozen vegetables? In case you don’t, catch up by clicking here. So, in general it’s the same with preserved veggies. There’s nothing wrong about buying a tin full of vegetables for whenever you need it quickly. What’s more, by stocking such products in your basement or kitchen cupboard you’ll always know that you have some vitamins handy. For example, canned green beans might supply your body with enough iron, while tinned maize can give starch and potassium.
  1. Fruits
Oh, how predictable! No, it’s not actually. Most people prefer having fresh fruits at home. Of course, that’s the best option, but during hard times like today when we are barely able to go to the market, this might be a good offer. Some nutritionists say that it’s advisable to search for canned fruits that have been preserved in their own juice. However, in case you have fruits stored in syrup, you can always give them a little wash before eating. Just for you to know: tinned pineapple is definitely a-must as it has vitamin C, potassium and lots of enzymes.
  1. Fish
 Many of us know that fish, as a whole, has plenty of proteins to give. It’s also high in omega-3 fatty acids that might reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. There’s always a “but”, though! Be sure not to go too far with eating not-fresh fish. For example, tuna might contain a bit more mercury than necessary. You’re probably familiar with how dangerous high doses of mercury can be for the organism, right? So, specialists suggest that we shouldn’t go for more than one canned tuna per week. OK, we’ll survive on that! Don’t forget to supply yourself with our canned foods by choosing your preferable category from the e-store as you click here! Of course, be sure to share this information with all your relatives and friends so we are all somehow safe in these critical times!
