This post is brought to you in partnership with Cans Get You Cooking. As always, all opinions are my own.HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I haven’t posted for a while because I’ve been away in NYC for the past 2 weeks. I just got back to Philly and it feels great. As much as I love NYC, it feels so good to be back home. As soon as I got to Philly I noticed the weather got so much colder and it’s been raining since we arrived here.
Now if you’re like me then you know a warm comforting meal is a must on a cold chilly day. One of the things that I find inconvenient when making winter meals is the lack of fresh fruits and veggies. Luckily, I’m always stocked up with canned fruits and vegetables in my “cantry”. Seriously guys, being Middle Eastern and a lover of Mexican foods I can never get enough canned beans and corn.
This month I’ve partnered up with Cans Get You Cooking to bring you these awesome recipes which all feature canned foods and can be made in 30 minutes or less. Cans Get You Cooking is a program dedicated to spreading the message that the ironclad technology of cans seals in foods’ freshness, flavor, nutrition and goodness so that you can create meals you feel good about serving and that your family will love.
Who said canned veggies aren’t as good for you as fresh veggies?! Did you know that fresh fruits and vegetables are harvested at their peak of ripeness and canned within hours, making the can one of the best ways to lock in nutrients and get food from its source to your family table. Plus, it’s so much easier to cook with canned foods because canned foods mean less prep and year-round availability, making healthy, homemade meals a reality, more often.
A well-stocked pantry “cantry ” – helps you get through the week with creative meals you can feel good about serving your family and friends.People who frequently eat canned foods may have healthier diets than people who don’t. Yay to a healthier lifestyle!
I hope you enjoy these recipes and have a wonderful New Year!
