Eating Healthy On A Budget

Eating Healthy On A Budget

If you have problems serving healthy foods because of the prices, you’ll find these tips to be just what you need to eat healthy on a budget.

1 Eliminate junk food

Doing your shopping on your own is the easiest way to shop, as children and sometimes spouses are usually the ones requesting junk food.
Shopping alone will prevent this, and ensure that you only buy the foods you need.

2 Water or milk instead of soft drinks

You can still enjoy your favourite drinks at a sporting event or night out, although you should stick with the smallest size when shopping to save money and calories. Children and even adults need milk or milk products on a daily basis. Milk will also help you get strong and provide calcium for healthy bones and healthy teeth.

3 Buy fruits in quantity

When they are in season, buy fruits in quantity and freeze any extras. You can buy several pounds this way, and freeze extras to have them when the fruit goes out of season. Wash the fruit well, remove any spoiled pieces, dry thoroughly, then freeze in plastic zipper bags.

4 Meats and beans

Meats and beans are the best sources of protein. Lean meat is more expensive than meats with a lot of fat. Canned beans are a great deal as well, as they give you protein at a great price.

5 Beans as a substitute

You should use beans as a substitute for meat on a frequent occasion. There are several varieties, so you can prepare them in a crockpot, so when you return home they are ready to consume.

The USDA recommends eating beans at least 4 times per week. If you experience gas after eating beans you should try washing them, covering them with water, bringing the water to a boil, then draining it off and refilling the pot.

6 Fish often

If you live in a coastal area or an area where fish are around, make that an integral part of your diet. You can catch them from the lakes or rivers, saving money in the process.

7 Water fills

You should fill up with foods that have a high content of water. Watermelon, salads, and even sugar-free gelatin are all great examples.

Eating healthy is always something you can’t go wrong with. You can eat healthy for just a few bucks, which makes it perfect for those on a budget.
Now, you don’t need a lot of money to have the lifestyle and health you’ve always wanted.
