    Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have To Cost More

    Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have To Cost More

    You aren’t alone if you feel like you sometimes sacrifice healthy alternatives due to staying within your food budget. However, eating healthy doesn’t have to cost more—it just requires planning ahead.

    Grow Your Own Or Invest In A CSA

    Planting your own garden provides you with a steady stream of healthy produce. Even if you only plant a handful of items like lettuce, carrots, squash, and tomatoes your options are endless. Be sure to learn how to can what is leftover, but feel free to share with friends, family, and neighbors. Better yet if you can exchange your harvest. If gardening is not your thing a CSA box (cost-shared agriculture) allows you access to quality produce for less.

    Reduce Your Food Waste

    Americans waste up to 40 percent of their food. For example, when you purchase ingredients for a recipe, only use only a portion of it, then forget about it and end up throwing out what is left. Eliminate this waste and reduce your food budget.

    Shop Smart

    Buy in bulk, buy on sale, use store discount cards, clip coupons, stock up on healthy frozen items when on sale, and buy fresh herbs and nuts online from direct wholesalers such as Nuts.com or Mountain Rose Herbs.

    Last but not least, buy less meat protein and replace it with beans, whole grains, and other less expensive and healthier protein options.
