The good news is that both Yoplait Yogurt and Bear Naked Granola are on sale at Brookshire’s. Along with being a great snack, yogurt can also act as a substitute for sour cream, but make sure that you buy plain light yogurt.

Did you know that fruits can help you stay hydrated with the help of water? Some fruits are full of water. Oranges are extremely juicy treats, when you take a bite the juices just run out. You can refrigerate oranges and eat the juicy orange after a hot day in the sun.
Oranges are also full of vitamin C and fiber, so they make a healthy snack.Water is also very important to stay hydrated. Both Food Club water bottles and California Navel Oranges are on sale this week at Brookshire’s.
When you buy fresh produce does it spoil too quickly? If so, frozen vegetables would be a better alternative. Frozen vegetables are a great idea to keep in your freezer. They are handy to have in case you cannot think of an idea for dinner; you can just pull them out of the freezer and cook.
Frozen vegetables are delicious added to pasta or stir fry. When vegetables are frozen they last longer than when they are fresh, therefore you could store them for a few weeks. When certain vegetables are out of season you can purchase them frozen. This week on sale at Brookshire’s is Food Club frozen vegetables. This would be a great time to stock up on them.

Does anything say SPRING more than a bowl full of fresh strawberries? When I see berries in the store—like they are at Brookshire’s this week—I know the beautiful days of spring are upon us—at least some of the time. So while the weather may be unreliable, at least you can count on some things—like strawberries!
Ever made macerated strawberries? Macerated is a fancy-schmancy food term that means you cut them up, and let them sit so they get really juicy. So…slice up berries, sprinkle with just a tablespoon of sugar or Splenda, and let them stand 20 minutes. They’re the perfect dessert, just the way they are!
