5. Canned foods
Tomatoes: the base of many recipes and a valuable ally in the kitchen.
Vegetables: Corn adds a sweet and crunchy touch to salads, and beans complement meals nicely. Although the texture of canned vegetables is slightly different from fresh ones, they are still great for quick meals. Ideally, they should be rinsed before eating to remove a large part of their sodium content.
Legumes: They are high in fibre, low in fat, and a source of plant protein. What’s not to love? Chickpeas can be made into hummus, and lentils are delicious in soups. Roasted soybeans make a great snack.
Canned fish (in water): Canned fish are not only very versatile, but also affordable and nutritious. Try it in a sandwich, salad, or pâté. A great addition to the menu!
Fruits: Focus on fruit canned in their juice or in water and avoid those canned in syrup. Canned fruits can be served as a dessert, as a snack, and to satisfy your sweet tooth!
