Tips for Eating Healthy on a Budget

Tips for Eating Healthy on a Budget
It can feel like eating healthy is just so expensive! But the truth is, there are lots of things you can do to help make your money go further while making healthier food choices.

I make meal plans every day and I always try to make affordable meal plans and give tips to my clients how to manage with the increasing cost of food.

Here are tips for eating healthy on a budget:

1.Meal plan
By planning out your meals ahead of time helps you take the guesswork of what you need from the store.

2.Make a shopping list
When you write down what you need, you minimize the risk of wandering aisles and doing a grab and drop of unnecessary things.

3.Make multiples meals from a single item
Just because you bought one of it doesn't mean you have to make it all for one meal. If you can, stretch it out across multiple meals so you can squeeze more value.

4.Eat what you have
Money is down the drain when you throw bad food out. Make the effort to eat up what you have. This goes for preparing the foods you have in your fridge and pantry as well as eating up leftovers.

5.Buy in season
It's a matter of supply and demand. When it's the appropriate growing season and therefore a certain produce item is more abundant, the price will be cheaper then, and that's when you buy.

6.Eat more legumes
Lentils, beans and chickpeas are packed with protein and fiber and are much cheaper than meat.

7.Use more frozen fruits and vegetables
Frozen fruit and vegetables are just as good as fresh, and often cheaper.
Make your own granola and protein bar

8.Homemade granola and protein bar is super easy to make and cheaper than buying from the supermarket
