Tinned Food

I found this quote in a Hercule Poirot book I'm reading and thought it was delightfully expressive of what our family is trying to do with our eating.

To set the quote up, Hercule and some others have been trapped in a hotel high in the mountains without any hope of getting down for a few days.

"His wife, the cook, was more forthcoming. Fortunately, she explained to Poirot, there was a large reserve of tinned food--but she herself thought little of food in tins. It was wickedly expensive and what nourishemnt could there be in it? The good God had never intended people to live out of tins."
