How To Eat Healthy On A Budget In 2021

        How To Eat Healthy On A Budget

            Welcome back to my blog today I'm going to be sharing with you guys how to eat healthy on a budget and some really great tips for eating healthy on a budget and these ones are really going to help you 

            save some money but still eat healthily so let's just go ahead and get right into it so 

1: to plan ahead 

            I find this way not only do you stay within budget by only buying what you need but you end up not having a lot of food waste and having to throw 

            things out because you weren't able to get through it in time I find this is especially true for veggies some fruits things like spinach or raspberries 

            they go bad and then you have to throw them out and it's money in the garbage and you ended up buying too much because you didn't plan so I plan and I only buy like 

            what you need and then that way you're on a budget you're not wasting and you're gonna get through everything that you have bought. 

2: buy in season 

            buying in season is great because a lot of these items are going to be more affordable than if you were to buy things that aren't in season 

            it's also a great way to add some variety to your diet because every season you're gonna have different fruits and vegetables that are in season and so you kind of can rotate and all of them have different vitamins and minerals for you in

            them so it's a great way to kind of change things up and to save some money too so right now for me things like squashes and apples are in season because of where I live but depending on where you live that could be different 

            so I would suggest just doing a quick google search for your area your province or your state wherever you are and what's in season and kind of doing that you can also visit farmers markets because all of that is going to be local and it's going to be you know in the season as well. 

3: buy frozen 

            this one is such a good one because I feel like frozen is really underrated and people think it's not as good or is actually frozen can almost be better sometimes and

            that's because fruits and vegetables are flashes frozen at their peak ripeness which is when they have their most nutritional value so by buying frozen you actually can get more nutrients some of your fruits and vegetables then if you were to buy the fresh counterparts it's also really great 

            because if you think you might not get through a vegetable before it goes bad frozen you don't have to worry about that so you just have it in

            In the freezer, you have these great healthy items ready to go but you don't have that risk of it going bad before that you can finish it.

4: join your grocery stores reward programs 

            a lot of the grocery stores near me have points programs where you collect points on all the food you buy even they have specials where you get you to know ten times the points or five thousand points on 

            this item this week and it's a great way to collect basically free money towards your groceries I love doing that and then you know you can apply all those points to your groceries later you can apply them all at once you can ply 

            they like in five-dollar increments but if you know food is something we're gonna have to bias we might as well earn points towards it right so joining 

            those rewards programs can be really beneficial I've racked up hundreds and hundreds of dollars over the years just by joining rewards programs.

5: comes to buying meat 

            so if you're unable to buy grass-fed organic meat for budget purposes you're better off choosing a leaner cut of meat than a more fatty counterpart and 

            that's because all the bad stuff that's in your non-organic or you're not grass-fed meat is stored in the fat so if you can get lean or cut of meat without the fat you're gonna get less of all 

            that by-product and all that stuff that you were trying to avoid in the first place so if you can't buy organic chicken stuff like 

            that or you can't buy grass-fed red meat I would choose your leaner ones so like extra lean burst is you know lean or not lean at all ground meats because like I said they're gonna have less fat so 

            they're gonna have less of all that stuff that was concentrated in the animal because all the bad stuff in that animal was concentrated in the fact along the same lines of organic.

6: focus on the Dirty Dozen and the clean fifteen 

            I'm gonna put a graphic up right here but you can definitely just google and save the image to your phone for when you go grocery shopping but basically, you focus on the Dirty Dozen being 

            what you buy organic and the clean fifteen you don't have to worry about spending money on it so the Dirty Dozen has things like strawberries which I believe is 

            number one spinach peaches apples and then clean fifteen are usually a lot of things that have shells on them already so for example bananas you don't have to buy bananas organic 

            because there's an outside to them that you take off and then the fruit is in the inside so kind of using this as a great way to kind of budgets you don't have to 

            buy everything organic because it may not matter as much for that vegetable or fruit now if you still can't buy organic. 

7: use a really good vegetable 

            rinse so you can either use one with vinegar or with baking soda there are two different variations that I've found 

            that I've used and I like the vinegar one a little bit more but basically you just allow it to soak and it really removes and strips any like pesticides residues anything up on your fruits and vegetables 

            that you may not want so this is also a really good affordable option if you still can't buy organic just to make sure you really thoroughly clean your produce before you eat it. 

8: freeze leftovers 

            I do this all the time to really minimize the risk of not being able to finish things or you know just making a big batch of something that was like on sale like abutter nut squash soup and 

            then freezing a bunch and you can have meals that are already ready to go also if you have stuff that's already ready to go you're gonna be less likely to you know grab something on 

            the way home or have to pick up something last-minute that's not in your budget cuz you already bought something in your budget you pre-made it and it's ready to go in the freezer for example 

            tonight I'm gonna be taking out some chili from my freezer that I've already made and then that way my meals ready to go and I don't have to worry. 

9: buy the house Branden

            I do this all the time at my local grocery store frequently the house brand is right beside the name-brand and the ingredients are usually the same if not better 

            I find and your end up saving a few cents if not or dollar or two then the brand-name counterpart so this is a great way that you can save a little bit all 

            the time that's really gonna add up over time so even though it's a few cents or maybe a dollar - that really adds up over time for essentially the same product because it's what's in the inside right 

            it doesn't matter what the name says on the outside it matters what's inside the product so I really like you know buying the no-name or the house brand of that grocery store. 

10: buy things that are on sale 

            so I like to plan my meals around what's on sale at the grocery store that week so when I head in I buy the fruits in the products that are on sale to save some money and then I'll just get creative and make 

            my meals for the week based on what I bought like that way not only do you save some money but it adds some variety you're not only eating the same things all the time and you still save a lot of money.
