Eliminating canned foods takes some work. But, there are readily available alternatives to most canned foods like fruit, vegetables and beans. When it comes to tomato sauce and tomato paste, I’ve been at a lost to find a replacement… until now!
Check out these gorgeous glass jars chock full of organic goodness! The Bionaturae organic foods company packages tomato sauce (strained tomatoes), tomato paste and a variety of fruit nectars in healthy, BPA-free glass. Thank-you very much!!! It’s available on Amazon, but the shipping is outrageous. A friend pointed out that the Bionaturae line is also available on Vitacost.com, an excellent natural living store from which I already purchase most of our toiletries. Fortunately, Vitacost has $4.99 flat rate shipping. I added a 12 pack of tomato paste and 6 extra-large jars of sauce to my order. They arrived without any breakage. Don’t they look pretty?
P.S. My rough calculations show that at Vitcost prices, Bionaturae organic tomato paste is about 75 cents more per jar than regular canned tomato paste. Bionaturae organic tomato sauce is sold in 24 oz jars, rather than the typical 16 oz can. As such, the Bionaturae sauce is about 45 cents more per 16 oz than regular canned tomato sauce. It’ll be easy to store partially used jars of sauce in the fridge for later use.
