The canned items aisle of the grocery store used to be that one aisle nobody wanted to be caught lingering in. That’s because canned food was once considered a last resort when it came to feeding yourself, worthy of little more than sustenance for college kids or your cat, and not something that you could make a delicious, healthy recipe with.

But there’s no longer any reason why you should be ashamed to pile your grocery cart high with tins.

That’s because savvy shoppers know that the right canned food can deliver all the protein you can stomach at budget-friendly prices, not to mention plenty of other surprising nutritional perks to help you get jacked. Also, consider canned proteins like beans and fish as your answer to shortcut healthy meals. 

So raise your head high and push your cart into the darkness with pride on the hunt for these protein heavyweights as you proudly shout: “Don’t damn the can!”
