ok, I know for a fact that it is better to eat  a fresh veggie than a canned one...  BUT.... on the Hunter Diet the greens are a bit inconvenient to cook  when I'm flying  through the day.

Of late I've found that there are turnip greens and mustard greens in the can  that just have the greens and water.. nothing else.  

Is this ok?   I"m afraid I'm getting  hooked on the ease of throwing these into the pan.    But should I quit????


Well, I just see  a bit further down that Rex asked the same question!   So sorry for the  duplicate...

While fresh is best, if it means that you won't be getting any leafy greens if you don't eat canned, then eat the canned. I use canned veggies when camping or for emergency food. My $0.02.

If you can find frozen, perhaps alternate between canned and frozen?

I asked a smilar question about artichokes. It has salt, water and citric acid. I didnt buy the can coz of the citric acid. And fresh artichokes are way too expensive. It's a product of the U.S.A.

I read that many times, frozen vegetables are better than fresh vegetables because they are flash frozen at the peak of freshness (do I sound like a commercial?) and many times so called fresh vegetables are laying there for days getting old and losing their nutrients.

AC I was wondering if a vegetable is a superfood and if it's canned would it be worth the small amount of avoid in there to have it to get the super benefits? I ask myself that too when I shop. I like the way that my Qi Gong teacher said when people asked about being compliant to practicing Qi Gong..He said "There's Good, Better, and Best".  That's how I keep from stressing myself out about being super compliant on the Warrior plan.

In the absense of fresh or frozen veggies then canned would do for me, at least it has some of the nutrients left, and still contains fibre.  Better than no veggies at all       Its not always convenient to dash down the market for fresh veggies, we can't always get what we want in the freezer, so just do your best with what's available.

Also looking at it from a monetary perspective, if canned is cheaper than buying fresh greens out of season it would be another reason to just go for it and not sweat the small stuff  .

ps: you look fab Sheri, the curls really suit you.

It's either fresh or canned with greens for me. They just don't taste the same frozen. MMMM greens..Aani


Listen, this is what I think: I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include. Pere Henri (Chocolat)

Aani, I noticed also that frozen greens have a lot of rotten looking pieces and take kale for instance, the manufacturer doesn't cut off the spine part of the leaves and I always cut that off..gives me a stomach ache. I'd rather eat fresh greens if I can..get it? CAN? HA! HA! HA! HA!

JMO: if the canned greens don't have additives and you're okay with the taste (some people don't like canned food), then I say stock up. Because of the canning process the food is cooked in the can, so canned greens are just precooked, that's all You can also drink or cook with the water in which the greens were packed.

Thanks Rex!      

That's right Brighid45! If you can stand the taste..lol. Most canned I can tolerate, but not canned artichokes..one time I breaded them and fried them and it hid the "canned" taste so that was ok, but I can't lose weight doing that!

Unfortunately for me, I like the taste of citric acid when added to canned artichoke hearts. I eat them right out of the can *slurp*. It just goes to show that we are all individuals, with individual tastes.

I eat quite a few canned goods, as I can get very hungry & they are sometimes avaiable. As a matter of fact, our can opener wore out & my son & DH got another one. It was very weird & doesn't cut the can. It actually 'uncrimps' the top part. It takes some learning to use it, & I'd never heard of such a thing. [I told my son to get one not made in China, so this Taiwanese one is what we got!  I hope it lasts longer so I can get a fix when needed!]
Cheers!

If it is the same as the one we got, it cuts the top of the crimp so the top can be placed back on top of the can...

Ours wore out faster than a regular can opener..

We have been using hand crank can openers since and they all seem to wear out really quickly...

I have read that the inside of cans are coated with a compound that contains a plastic that becomes a xenoestrogen in our system.Could anyone elaborate on that?

Lola...very informative...I do limit my use of canned foods when fresh is not easy to store safely..ie. when we do our long distance boat trips. Otherwise...I do organic & fresh...which is most of the time.
