>Healthy Deal of the Week: Cantaloupe

Cantaloupes are on sale this week 2 for $3.00 at Publix. This is a great deal since this fruit is packed with nutrients! Cantaloupes are a great source of vitamins A and C as well as potassium (which can help lower blood pressure), folate, fiber and B vitamins. Look for cantaloupe that is firm, well-colored, free from blemishes, and nice and round. They work great in a fruit salad or alone. To freeze, slice the fruit in half and remove the seeds and rind and cut into cubes, slices, or balls. Lay the fruit out in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for about an hour or until firm. Then place the fruit in a freezer-safe container and store for up to a year. What a deal!

Happy shopping!
