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: Asparagus
Asparagus

Pick of the Crop:

Choose firm, fresh asparagus with compact tips and smooth stems. Both thin and thick spears can be tender. Spears grow either thin or thick from the ground and don’t get thicker with age. Asparagus is rich in nutrients, including folic acid.  Folic acid is important to help prevent birth defects.
