More Canned Goods
There are other great low carbohydrate canned foods that you should add to your kitchen pantry. Artichoke hearts, cauliflower, turnip greens, mushrooms and Brussels sprouts are great vegetable choices. Canned mackerel, sardines and anchovies are other excellent sources of protein.
When choosing canned goods, always look for low-sodium products. Canned foods tend to be very high in sodium. Be aware of this and do not consume too many canned products at once. Try to integrate your low-carb canned veggies or fish with fresh vegetables, meats, dairy and eggs.
Also look for more natural products that have less processing. Canned goods tend to be less expensive than fresh products. Spend a little more for a high-quality food from a smaller brand that focuses on quality and nutrition. Commercial products are less expensive because they are mass-produced, which means the focus is quantity, not quality.
While a low-carb diet can be helpful for weight loss, be sure you are still getting enough nutrition and eating a balance of foods. Include fresh nuts and seeds, goat cheeses, eggs and lots of vegetables in your diet. Consider integrating some fruits and whole grains after a period of time.
