Here are eleven tips to help you maximize your trip to the grocery store.  See how these eleven steps can maximize your health, wallet, and time.

1.      Read nutrition labels. Be aware of sneaky ingredients that go by different names. When there’s more than one food choice, compare nutrition labels. Choose the item with the lowest amounts of sodium, saturated fat, trans fat, and added sugars. 

Pro tip: Ingredients are always listed in order of quantity.

Other names you might see for:

      - Trans fats: hydrogenated oil

Summer not only brings out barbecue grills, but also bacteria. Bacteria love the hot, humid days of summer, grow faster than at any other time of the year, and can cause foodborne illness. Summer barbecues are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and each other’s company. Keep your barbecues with family
and friends healthy and safe this summer with the following tips.

TIP #1 Keep It Clean!  Wash clean. Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food. If you're eating where there’s no source of clean water, bring water, soap, and paper towels or have disposable wipes or hand sanitizer available.


Nebraskans are excited as they prepare their gardens anticipating what they want to home preserve throughout the growing season.  Step-by-step instructions from approved, research tested recipes must be followed to assure foods are preserved safely.

Nebraska Extension is offering hands-on workshops in North Platte, Imperial, and Grant to guide the home food preservation process.
