Eating healthy shouldn’t break the bank. A lot of people, including myself have said “It’s impossible to eat healthy on a budget!” Well, I hate to admit it, but that’s just not true. All of us are different and what we can afford to eat and what we like to eat will vary. However, I can tell you that I have saved a LOT of money by changing my eating habits.
Here is what I typically purchase at the store: 1 Bag of Frozen Chicken (or at Albertsons they have steak Buy 1 get 1 Free), Cucumbers, A plastic tub of spinach/salad, Frozen fruit (Pineapples, Strawberries, Blueberries), Tuna in the can.
I often shop at different stores because of the lowest prices (why spend .99 on a cucumber when another place is offering it for .69?!) The items above can feed me from Sunday until the next Sunday and the amount I paid was just under $32. I also have a large tub of Protein powder that is blended with the fruit for shakes. If I were to eat out at McDonalds or Subway I would have easily spent more money than $32 and wouldnt have been as healthy or as satisfied.
So what are your tricks? How do you save money and eat healthy? I always watch the ads that come in the mail. Shop around at various stores and use coupons!!! 🙂
