Lots of great info guys/ gals! Apples are really cheap right now! So is squash! And I BELIEVE Blueberries?Like others said, local, in season fruits and veggies are cheapest! I stock up on meats and freeze when they have buy one get one or more , free. Now's a good time to stock up the pantry with canned goods. You can rinse beans and other canned veggies, if excess salt is a concern. Soups, stew , and chili freeze well. Rethink meals, have breakfast for dinner.That's a huge hit at my house!More Later, Time to get son, and myself motivated for school and work!
To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!
I go to Aldi a lot & we get most of the grocery shopping done from their. I try to pick healthiest of the choices. It's probably not always the best but I do my best. I tend to buy ground turkey in a tube. It's not the healthiest option out their but it's way better than ground beef. I try to drain the fat out so @least it's a bit healthier. We like the taste better now. Once in a great while we desire meat but not very much. I buy skinless, boneless chicken in a big bag & it has less sodium in it than most. It cost around $6.00 I usually use 1 piece for dinner for a family of 3.
Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down. Faith + grace = salvation

not all healthy foods are expensive.if you look through the sp archives or the older threads on this team you will find several articles on eating healthy on a budget.you can plan your meals around food that are on in the sales,buying local is also often cheaper as you donīt have transport costs.the food is often fresher.if you have the space you could try growing your own produce.cooking from scratch also works out alot cheaper and is often healthier and you know exactly what has gone in.buying food which are near their end by date are often cheaper and are a good buy if you plan to use them up in the next few days or if they are stuff you can freeze(like meat).them same goes with seasonal foods.hope this helps.
