Sometimes buying fresh produce can be too expensive, try looking in the frozen section for budget friendly quality fruits and veggies. A big bag of frozen berries usually costs the same or less then a small container of fresh.

    I buy allot of frozen items at Trader Joes especially like the cherries, mango chunks and the mixed berry melodies for smoothies. I also like the wild caught salmon in a three pack very fresh and reasonably priced. The frozen brown rice and steel cuts oats are great as well ~ and convenient ~ no chance to complain about not having time for healthy breakfast. My point is this. I believe frozen is just as healthy and it just boils down to simply reading labels.

    I compare the frozen prices to the fresh - often the frozen is cheaper for the same amount, and I don't have to worry about using it up before it spoils.

    This is a good tip --- and to add to it, we can now buy microwaveable veggies! emoticon

    I buy fresh when available and depend on frozen to fill the gaps! I buy very few canned items.

    I do that to. It helps!
