Canned foods are a convenient, affordable way to achieve a healthy diet. Yet, less than half (42%) of Americans realize canned foods count toward their dietary recommendations. The fact is all forms (fresh, frozen, canned and dried) are recommended to ensure a proper balance of nutrients.
Shopping for foods rich in protein but hate the high prices of meat? Consider adding canned beans to your meal. Half a cup of beans matches the amount of protein in an ounce of meat, chicken, or fish, and costs much less!
