Bush's baked beans, most canned beans like black, chick peas, red kidney, canned tomatoes, corn, tuna and green beans. Other than that we don't really eat much canned food.

A MYTH, that is perpetuated by internet posters.
sorry, you can read articles stating anything, but that doesn't make it true: 2 things about canned veggies that keep me away from most of them: 1-they have been over processed so do lose some of their nutrients and 2- they usually taste like mush. Nothing is worse in my opinion that canned spinach or canned peas and carrots. As for frozen veggies that is slightly different. This is not saying there are no nutrients in canned veggies or I don't eat the. Most of us have a few canned foods we really enjoy or keep for a fast meal, but fresh is still preferable to canned. BTW, the myth has nothing to do with internet posters: my opinion comes mostly from classes I took in college when I was a foods and nutrition major way before the word internet was invented.

Thai curry paste, enchilada sauce for those times I want some easy food thick with chiles, some excellent tomato puree from Classico, and beans. I don't buy much canned stuff other than that.

I don't buy much food in cans. It's pretty much limited to:
-Corn (although I mostly buy frozen)
-Coconut milk
-Beans (plain, refried, and I will admit a bit of a weakness for Bush's Baked Beans.)

Plus the occasional oddity I pick up at local "ethnic food" purveyors.

My favorite canned foods are:

Organic kidney beans
Trader Joes Chili and beans
Chicken of the Sea, low salt/sodium chunk white albacore

That's about it. Don't eat canned food too much though. Prefer the fresh stuff.

A few times I have found pistachio nuts in the shells in cans and they were fresher and tastier than any others I've ever had.
