Clean Choice Awards 2012: Pantry Staples & Canned Goods

Consider these your first line of defense when pulling a meal together at the last moment!

1. If you’re a regular reader of Clean Eating, then you already know that we love this line of BPA-free canned beans; they make a quick and nutritious addition to any meal! $2,

“Eden beans are always a winner. I mixed these black beans into a pasta, and it doesn’t get better than that. Best of all, you can relax and not worry about BPA as you chomp.”
– Alicia Rewega, Editor-In-Chief


2. This is as close to homemade broth as it gets, with only organic vegetables, organic herbs and sea salt. $3 to $4, for retail locations

3. We recommend keeping these 100% natural tomatoes on hand – they’re made without additives or preservatives and add a fresh boost of flavor to your cooking. $3,


4. This BPA-free canned salmon has a lovely, mild taste, which can be the perfect complement to a salad, sandwich or even made into killer salmon patties! $6, for retail locations


5. A jack-of-all-trades, Bob’s Red Mill makes a couscous that’s nutty, chewy and ready to be smothered in any sauce, stew or curry! $4.50,


6. Lighter-tasting than conventional whole wheat yet still 100% whole grain, white whole-wheat flour is a wonderfully clean flour option to keep on hand in your pantry. $5,


7. To make this no-effort exotic and tasty soup, you simply add broth, chicken and natural peanut butter and you’re good to go in 30 minutes! $6,

“This soup tasted so amazing. I can’t wait to try the peanut sauce variation on the back of the package.”
– Michael Spiar, Copy Editor
