Choosing fish
Choosing fish

There are lots of low-cost options when it comes to buying fish. Canned salmon is one inexpensive option, and it’s high in the heart-healthy omega-3 fats. Other fish that are high in omega-3 fats include trout, anchovies, herring, sardines, and Atlantic and Pacific mackerel.

Produce Spotlight: Cabbage
Cabbage

Pick of the crop:

Choose cabbage heads that are heavy and solid, with no worm or bug damage.
Look for good color and stems that are not dried out or split. Don’t wash or cut your cabbage until you are ready to use it. Cutting or shredding cabbage can make it lose some of its Vitamin C. Store cabbage heads in plastic bags in the refrigerator. Store leftover cut cabbage in the same way but once it’s cut, use it within 1 or 2 days. Cabbage is a great buy!  Green cabbage or red, cabbage is high in vitamin C and other compounds that protect your health.
