Default How bad is canned food?

I regularly find myself at the office at 8pm, so i keep a stash of food which doesnt go off in my drawer, its usually canned.
So how bad is canned? Am i giving myself tin/lead/xenoestrogen poisoning?

My gourmet paleo dinner tonight is:
3oz can wild salmon
3oz can tun in olive oil
8oz can beetroot(no salt)
dried apricots and currants.
Almonds.


Thanks!

In a pinch I don't see a problem. Sounds good!

Might try to wash some of the sodium away. When I use canned salmon, I dump it into a strainer and wash it pretty good with cold water to try to remove some of the salt. Seems to work.

Depending on how regularly you're finding yourself at the office will determine how "bad" canned food is for you.

If it's every night, obviously you're eating there quite often and you might want to get some higher quality foods.

If it's once a week, the cans are cool.

Somewhere in between, you'll have to decide.
