Eating on a budget for you and
your loved ones doesn’t have to be hard. You can find low-cost,
nutritious foods to plan your meals and help keep your family
healthy. First step: check weekly grocery ads to find deals on
ground turkey, chicken, fish, or canned beans. Look for
frozen or canned vegetables which often cost much less
than those with seasonings and sauces. In-season fruits
and veggies will likely be less expensive than those
out-of-season. Second, plan meals around
healthy staples. Like whole grain pasta or brown rice and use
smaller amounts of poultry or fish. Finally, substitute low-fat
ingredients, like ground turkey in place of ground beef. You can
also cut the amount of butter or oil in half, and use fat-free
dairy products. Do you have any ideas you want to share?
