Canned Vegetables...?

Still good right?

I know i should be getting the fresh greens at the market/grocery store.

but canned green beans/peas are still good for you

and are nutritional to your diet right?!

whats the biggest difference of the two?

    A lot of canned food is full of salt. It also loses a lot of nutrition in the canning process. Grocery store veggies lose nutrients as they age. I have heard that the best for nutrition is frozen food because it goes from picking to freezing faster than canning and doesn't sit around like grocery store veggies. The absolute very best are the ones you pick and eat right from your garden.

    Canned and fresh greens are both good for you. The fresh have more nutritional value. The fresh usually taste better, depending on the vegetable. The canned are less work, you just heat them up, while the fresh you have to wash, and usually cut up then cook. Good for you for eating your greens, regardless of what type you eat!

    Well, canned foods usually have preservatives and other things added to them, so they're not always great for your health if you eat too much of them. But yes, they do contain most of the same nutritional goodness for diets. Fresh foods just usually have more nutrients and other vitals than canned ones.

    you know i heard that canned tomatoes are actually HEALTHIER than fresh ones because like the canning process brings out some important and healthy vitamin in the tomatoes

    but personally i like fresh vegetables because they just feel know?

    but then again frozen peas and corn and REALLY good.

    but yes canned beans/peas ARE still good for you (:

    Canned veggies have a TON of sodium (salt) because of the preservatives. Try frozen, equally as good as fresh and easier to prepare! :)

    canned vegetables are healthy for you

    fresh greens are always good

    if you don't have time to wash greens and chop them up and everything

    then, canned vegetables is the way to go

    frozen vegetables are always good

    canned are usually ready to eat with a little warming up, Fresh needs to be cleaned, then cooked prior to eating.
