I can confidently call my food choices healthy, at least most of the time but I’m also a cheapskate at heart. Here is how I eat healthy for less:
Dont’s skip breakfast: Starting the day off right is key to eating healthy all day long. So what makes the best breakfast? Some studies found consuming protein for breakfast can help prevent overeating later in the day , but another found that eating abig breakfast with dessert could help keep off excess pounds . Choose what works best for you
Farmer’s Market: Despite the myth that farmers market are for the rich, they are a great way to get fresh produce at a cheaper price!
The food you buy at the farmers market is seasonal. It is fresh and delicious and reflects the truest flavors.Meeting and talking to farmers and food artisans is a great opportunity to learn more about how and where food is produced.
Flipp: Flips is one grocery app you can never do without once you start using. Flipp delivers digital circulars from over 800 local retailers, so you can find the best deals in your community every week. It’s like having all your local store flyers in the palm of your hand. You can shop at your leisure or on-the-fly, right from your phone.
Buy fresh or frozen over canned: Avoiding canned veggies, soups, and beans cuts out unnecessary sodium and for fruit excess sugar. Fresh always tastes better.
Prepare your own food: I love eating out, so we’re not talking give up eating out entirely! Preparing your own meals often, it’s much easier to know (and control) exactly what’s going into your body.
