Cheap & healty tips in preparing food?
I went shopping at Sam's club this weekend and noticed they have Canadian Bacon with no nitrites (lean ham & cheap). Too bad my husband already bought Virginia ham for our bean soup.
My Mom will be 90 years old this week. Her main diet is canned fish & veggies from her garden. She ate cheap & gave money to charities. Canned salmon is wild from Alaska, cheaper than frozen salmon from farm-raised China. Canned mackerel has more Omega-3 than salmon. Wild-caught Atlantic mackerel is less than $2 per can.
Anyone have a good recipe for canned fish, or recipes to save money with cheap cuts of meat? Thanks in advance. Below is type of fish and omega-3 content per 3.5 ounces. Mackerel leads the pack with 2.6 gram of Omega-3.
Trout, lake 2.0
Tuna, bluefin 1.6
Sardines, canned 1.5
Sturgeon, Atlantic 1.5
Tuna, albacore 1.5
Whitefish, lake 1.5
Bass, striped 0.8
Trout, brook 0.6

Halibut, Pacific 0.5
Ocean perch 0.3
