Getting the most out of your corner store
Getting the most out of your corner store

Do you ever do your food shopping at a corner store? Although larger grocery stores usually have lower prices and a better selection of healthy foods, you can still find healthy options at corner stores.

Produce Spotlight: Tomatoes
Tomatoes

Pick of the Crop:

Choose fragrant, firm tomatoes that give a little to gentle pressure. They should have full, bright color. Avoid tomatoes that are bruised or too hard or soft. For best flavor, store tomatoes at room temperature. If you need to ripen them, place them in a paper bag. But if they are already ripe (slightly soft) and you don’t plan to use them right away, put them in the refrigerator.
