12 Fresh Recipes to Whip Up with Your Favorite Canned Foods

After starting the Spending Fast I found that I had stockpiled A TON of canned foods so I really need to maximize them as much as I possibly could and really, more than anything, I just had eat them all up rather than buying more new groceries.

The benefits of having canned foods around are plentiful. Canned foods are convenient, easy to store, have a long shelf life, and probably most important to me, are typically priced very, very well. I love that canned foods help make life a little bit easier while also helping us save money! Keeping canned foods on hand is vital when you want to make quick, inexpensive meals. Utilize store-brand canned foods to cut costs even more at meal-time, and you’ll quickly see the savings add-up!

    I can my own in glass jars. Does that count?

    Canned veggies aren’t always less expensive per oz or lb of the vegetable since canned goods have so much liquid in the container. However, if you buy fresh just to have it spoil before you use it all, canned goods can be more cost effective.

    Canned foods can be a bargain, and are certainly convenient.

    However, I’d rather can my own vegetables, either from my garden or bought in bulk from a produce broker, than eat something from a metal can.

    Metal cans in the US are lined with plastic containing BPA. It gets into your food and does nasty things to your body.

    Be nice to your body and eat fresh produce. It doesn’t even have to be organic, although that’s nice if you can afford it.
