To get the most nutritious produce possible, the American Heart Association advises:
- Always read package labels. Choose options with the lowest amounts of added salt and sugar.
- Look for produce that is packed in its own juices or water.
- Avoid produce packed in syrup or a heavy sauce.
- Before using canned produce, drain and rinse well in a colander.
