Tip of the Week

Question

With food costs being at record highs, how do I eat healthy on a budget?

Answer

Food costs are at levels that have not been seen for decades. Rising food costs can hit the wallet hard. Things that are typically staples such as eggs, fish and meat are seeing the largest price jump per some reports. To cut your grocery bill there are some things you can do and still eat healthy. Consider eating more “meatless” meals. Use more beans, lentils and legumes as protein sources than meat. Do not buy “pre-cut” produce which can cost more money than buying the “whole” fruit or vegetable that you need to cut up yourself. Also consider eating more frozen fruits and vegetables and even canned which is often just as good and a healthy alternative. You can even rinse off canned produce that will reduce salt and or reduce sugar. Another suggestion is to buy store brands versus name brands because they are going to typically cost less. Other tips are as simple as sticking to your grocery list and not buying things that you may not really need or remembering to not go to the store hungry so that you are tempted to buy foods that are not as good for you or are more impulsive buys. The last suggestion is if you able to buy in bulk that can often save you some money and often too! Eating healthy can be done but some planning and thought are the best ways to make yourself successful.
