5 Canned Foods You Should Always Have On Hand

Canned foods are convenient, economical, and in some cases even healthier than their fresh counterparts. Here are five superstars I hope you are regularly taking advantage of!

Stacked Cans of Food

  1. Beans (any variety)
  2. 100% pumpkin puree
  3. Salmon (red sockeye best)
  4. Tomato paste
  5. Whole tomatoes

Homemade Salmon Salad with fresh Dill (close-up shot)

Quick Salmon Salad

Serves 2 -3

I am huge on getting people to eat more canned salmon to get in those vital omega 3 fats! I eat canned salmon at least twice a week as part of my lunch.


  • 1, 6 oz. can of red sockeye salmon

  • 2 tbsp plain Greek-style yogurt

  • ½ tbsp canola or olive oil based mayonnaise

  • ½ tbsp country-style Dijon mustard

  • 3 tbsp finely chopped red onion

  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley

    Juice of ½ a lemon

    Salt and Pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and stir until thoroughly blended. I love this salmon salad with a side of whole grain tortilla chips. You could also have it as a sandwich on 100% whole grain bread.
