Eat Healthy On A Budget Part 2

Eating well and saving more can be easier when you know when to shop and where to look.

  • Choose frozen vegetables — Because they’re harvested and frozen at their peak freshness, their nutrients are similar to fresh and they last longer.
  • Go meatless — Replace meat a few times each week with lower cost, high nutrition proteins like eggs, lentils, black beans, kidney beans or quinoa.

      Glad you liked the article. Simply increasing the volume and variety of fruit and vegetables in your diet is shown to reduce the risk of ill health and needn’t be costly.
