Here are easy ways to get the most nutritional bang for your buck:
• Stock the staples. Keep plenty of beans, brown rice, pasta, oatmeal and barley. Barley and rice add fiber and help stretch meals like soups, stews and casseroles. Beans are a great source of protein and fiber.
• See what’s on sale. Browse the sale ads or visit the supermarket online before you go shopping to see what’s on sale. Check the frozen vegetable section for sales to have a variety mixed vegetables on hand in the freezer.
• Shop in season. Fresh produce tastes better and costs less when it’s in season.
