Can you eat healthy on a budget?

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

No doubt times are tough. People are losing their jobs in record numbers. Money is beyond tight. A common theme I keep seeing is: "I can eat cheaper and feed my family if I feed them foods that aren't healthy." Well, I've been looking around this wonderful site to see what information I can find on eating on a budget... I wanted to share some of that info with anyone out there who thinks it is cheaper to feed their family "junk" foods and that they can't eat healthy on a budget...

    Ihave been cooking on a budget for about 4 years now
and the tricks or so easy:

Like when the meat dept marks down meats for SALE that day
I buy and cook and freeze it for another days meal

always buy what ever on sale only on sale.

shop the clearance part of all stores

little things that save alot in the end!!!

    This is a great blog post and timely for some. Families that are dependent on processed, convenience foods may find themselves struggling right now. My husband and I eat cheap and healthy with staples like dried beans, brown rice, wholesome foods, even organic chicken thighs and farm-fresh produce. It is a matter of getting fairly inexpensive wholesome ingredients and working with them in our household.
