Wednesday Walkthrough: Canned Food

For this week's (slightly delayed) Wednesday Walkthrough, I'd like to direct you to a friend of mine's incredible post "Why I'm on a Canned Food Strike." Camille says it better than I could've, and she's got great links to back up her stories. Very compelling and discouraging at the same time. I've got some Annie's meals in my cupboard now, and I'm not sure where I'm going to find tomatos, tomato sauce, etc. that's not in a can; but this definitely renews my determination to replace canned food as much as possible.

Remember, baby steps. Don't get overwhelmed and not do anything. Take it one can at a time. Start with a doable goal...replace one canned item per week. You can do it!

Joy, I'm right there with you. It's actually scary thinking about all the sources of BPA out there. About the tomatoes, I just read this in another blog:
"In the meantime, our advice to consumers is to avoid canned tomatoes (Pomi tomatoes come in Tetra-Pak cardboard packaging that is BPA-free) and to buy canned beans from Eden Organic, which uses C-enamel coated cans that are free of BPA. "
