Pork - Shop and Save

Pork Monthly
  • Pork costs less than most other meats.
  • Look for a “BEST if used by” date on the package.
  • The leanest cuts of pork include tenderloin and loin or rib chops and roasts. Look for ground pork that is at least 85% lean.

Bananas- Shop and Save

Banana Food Hero Monthly

❁ Bananas are available yearround at low prices. Yellow bananas are the most common and can be eaten at several stages of ripeness. Red bananas are shorter, plumper and only eaten when ripe. Plantains are related to bananas but are starchy, like root vegetables.

Chicken- Shop and Save

Chicken Food Hero Monthly

❁ Whole raw chicken may be cost less per pound but some parts have little meat.

❁ Large bulk packages of pieces may be cheaper per pound than smaller packages.

❁ Boneless, skinless pieces cost more but save time and have the least waste.

Brussels Sprouts- Shop and Save

Food Hero Monthly Brussels Sprouts

❁ Choose firm, compact Brussels sprouts that are green and heavy for their size. They look like tiny cabbages.

❁ Brussels sprouts are available as individual sprouts or still attached to the stalk. Choose sprouts that are the same size so they will cook in the same amount of time.

Tuna- Shop and Save

Tofu Food Hero Monthly

❁ Try store brands of canned tuna. They may be cheaper.

❁ Avoid cans that have dents, bulges, or signs of leaking.

❁ Weight of tuna cans may vary. Use the shelf sticker to compare cost per ounce rather than cost per can for the best value.
