This holiday season, save time and money by shopping for ingredients to feed a crowd at Dollar General. Skip the grocery store lines and head to your local DG to pick up these key staples, for less. Even better? This dietitian-approved shopping guide provides better-for-you options to turn to this Fall.

Canned Fruits & Veggies
They’re inexpensive, have a long shelf life, and are a healthful ingredient to add to your holiday recipes; what’s not to like about canned fruits and vegetables?! Pro tip: Drain and rinse your canned produce in a strainer before use. While the flavor won’t go down the drain, excess sodium will.

Frozen Fruits & Veggies
Frozen produce is an excellent option to keep on hand! Because the produce is frozen after harvest, it has just as much nutrition as the fresh stuff. Choose these options for easily incorporating whole foods into your diet (that won’t break the bank!).

Pantry Staples
Stock up on the following items now, and you’ll thank yourself later when holiday preparations are underway! These nutritious staples are key for your next feast… and DG has them for le$$!

Dried Fruits and Nuts
Dried fruit naturally sweetens your holiday dishes without all of the extra added sugar. Just be sure to select options that contain less or no added sugar, as marked by DG’s “Better For You” logo. Nuts are essential for your baking and cooking (not to mention a delicious way to add protein and fiber to your diet), and DG has a diverse selection!
