Healthy Eating on a Budget
Cook Smart 

Why?

  • People often think that eating healthy has to mean spending more, but here are some tips for eating healthy without huge costs

Tips

  • Preparing your own meals for you and your family is a great way to make sure you're eating healthy ingredients, and it can be less expensive than eating out or purchasing prepared foods.

  • Make extra! When you make a meal for your family, try to make enough to have leftovers. Soups, stews and casseroles can be frozen and saved for another time.

  • Try packing a lunch for work or on the weekends. You can even use the leftovers from last night's meal to help save money on buying lunches.

  • Try eating vegetarian once a week. Non-meat proteins like beans, eggs, cheese, tofu, nuts like almonds and peanuts, and yogurt are usually less expensive than meats.
