Heart Smart Eating requires you to shop smart, cook smart and eat smart. However, heart smart eating does not always require fresh ingredients. Here are some recommended canned food and frozen products you can choose and they can be kept for a longer period of time (or in a case of a national emergency).
If options are limited (i.e. canned food is either soaked in brine/syrup), you can drain and/or discard the solution to reduce the sugar and salt content.
