I like my canned foods, especially the low sodium ones!

I would avoid maybe a third of these foods, particularly on a low-carb diet.

Yogurt: Skip the "fruit on the bottom" yogurts. And, if you don't like yogurt, you don't need to eat it as part of a healthy diet, unlike vegetables.

Granola: Not part of a low carb diet, particularly because of the sugars.

Soup: While homemade soup can be made low carb, pretty much all soups that are canned have too many carbs.

Fruit, beans, and oatmeal are also not low-carb, although I myself have no problems eating them. They're certainly healthier than what I ate before dieting! :P

I'm as interested in taste as in nutrition, so no canned soup for me, I don't care how "nutritious" it is.

Our dietitian says Rinsing the beans is enough, soaking is overkill!

I also soak the canned beans for four hours to leach out more salt per my dietician. And frozen berries are my go to fruit come winter.
