Living on canned food for 1 week

Living on canned food for 1 week

Mike kicks off a brand new ‘Week On’ series, this time eating nothing but canned food in what could be classed as the ‘apocalypse diet’.

Enjoy watching, whilst Mike definitely doesn’t.

Do you think you could live on canned food only for 1 week?

A few tinned food facts:

  • Birmingham is the tinned food capital of the UK. A total of 640,000 cans of food are eaten in the city each day [2015] – that’s 58 cans for every 100 residents. Next in the tinned food league table is Glasgow, followed by Manchester and Newcastle.1
  • A typical household has at least ten tins of food at any one time, according to the industry body Canned Food UK.
  • The early tins of food were expensive and became a novelty status symbol for the middle classes. As the technology improved during the 19th century and cans became cheaper, tinned condensed milk was the most popular product.
  • The current method of canning was pioneered in 1904. The Max Ams Machine Company of New York patented the double-seam process now used in most modern food cans. Today a machine can safely seal more than 2,000 cans a minute. After the food is sealed, the cans are quickly heated to preserve the contents and to create an airtight seal to keep food fresh until eaten.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
