There are a lot of different reasons to make your own food. Here is a short list of why canned food can be problematic:
- Sodium Overload
- Chemical Overload
- Creates Waste
- Takes Up a Lot of Space
- More Expensive
There are even more reasons, but you get the idea. One of the reasons I’m trying to cut down on canned food is due to the fact that MOST EVERY canned food item contains the chemical BPA. Read more about the studies done by Consumer Reports here. Eden Organics, however, is the pioneer in BPA Free Canned Goods and are a great option if cooking dry beans doesn’t work for you. I love a company with Integrity!
