Salad Bar

Your grocery store salad bar is likely to have several of the vegetables—already prepped and ready—that you’ll need for this fresh salsa.

Salad Bar Salsa With Grilled Flank Steak

Deli

The deli counter offers some great lower-sodium meat products. Include just a touch of intensely flavored, salty prosciutto (dry-cured ham) for this quick, one-skillet meal.

Italian Turkey Sauté

Freezer

Cooking dry rice is less expensive, but the already-cooked products available in the freezer section or in the grains aisle take much less time.

Curried Rice With Shrimp and Basil

Canned Goods

If you're watching sodium, buy reduced-sodium or no-salt-added canned items. Robyn also looks for cans made without the chemical BPA.

Black and White Bean Salad

Shopper’s Guide

De-stress your dinner hour with a little help from your grocery store and Diabetes Forecast Food Editor Robyn Webb, MS, LN. Her newest kitchen must-have, The Smart Shopper Diabetes Cookbook, shows how to use fresh and minimally processed prepared foods found at the salad bar and deli, or in the freezer aisle, to cook delicious meals. The cookbook includes 125 new recipes, shopping tips, and a five-day menu planner. It’s available at shopdiabetes.org, at bookstores nationwide, or by calling 1-800-232-6733.
