I am retired and on a very tight budget yet I buy all three, Fresh, Frozen and Canned vegetables. How?

Walmart has no salt added vegetables in cans. I had their cut green beans at dinner today. The sodium per serving in this can was 10 mg. In my pantry is the Walmart Great Value brand can of peas, again no salt added. The sodium per serving in the can of peas is also 10 mg. I also have a Libby's can of sweet corn with no salt, no sugar added. I bought this at Walmart and once again the sodium per serving is only 10 mg. The best part is most of these cost under a dollar.

If you have a Save A Lot store near you, they always have low prices on fresh and frozen vegetables. They usually do not carry the low sodium canned vegetables. For that I shop at Walmart.

The bottom line is that vegetables can easily fit most budgets.
