Convenient Food: Canned Tomatoes

6. Canned Tomatoes

While it’s often thought that fresh is better than canned, canned vegetables, including tomatoes, in fact stack up well nutritionally against fresh. Canned produce is often processed shortly after it’s harvested, so most of the nutrients are maintained in the canned version. However, sodium can be high in canned products, so look for “no-salt-added” or “less-sodium” options. No-salt-added canned tomatoes save you the time and effort of seeding, chopping, and peeling fresh tomatoes, and they work beautifully in many dishes, including Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Pizza, as toppings for bruschetta, or to make quick homemade salsa.
