  • Little steps lead to big changes.

    Thanks for sharing
  • I like the stores that print out the breakdown of costs per ounce or per serving. Often I find that the smaller sizes are more of a bargain.

    Also, sometimes sale items are pricier than brands not on sale. if I grab a sale item from an end cap I will go to it's home on the shelf to compare costs. Those nickels and dimes add up!

    I shop at a food coop & purchase organic or minimally treated produce. Also there is such as variety of fruits & veggies, nuts & other organic products I shop there every 2 weeks. purchase from big box for staples like oatmeal, rice, beans. I shop big box obce every 2-3 months.The savings from the big box help me have enough for organic products.Thats how I even out purchase price increase for organic food so I can stay within budget.
  • Don't go shopping when you are hungry! You will save a lot!

    Fast Weight Reduction Plan
    Fat-free foods happen to be popular for a long time. However, these foods are often not low in calories. Lots of people complete with fats absolutely free or lowered unwanted fat cookies and desserts.

    It's possible that we will be moving in another two or three months (if the local real estate market cooperates) so I've been looking through my existing pantry and frozen items. Yikes, you'd think I was auditioning for one of those reality shows about survivalists or hoarders. It will be interesting to see how many healthy meals I can conjure up with what I already have on hand. With dried beans alone I could feed an army. The lesson here: your kitchen goods expand to fit the storage space available.
  • I love fresh veggies. But I will use some frozen.
  • Frozen veggies are very close to fresh in my book.
  • Dried beans are typically cheaper (and lower in sodium) than canned beans - all you have to do is soak them overnight when you know you're going to use them, and voila!

    We also make a ton of soups in the winter, and have started making our own veggie stock using leftover vegetable scraps. The ends of carrots, zucchini, scallions, potato and onion peels, etc. You keep a ziploc bag full of the scraps in the freezer - once the bag is full, it's time to add water, boil for several hours, then drain and freeze the stock! Cheaper, and with WAY less sodium!

    In some cases heating food actually releases nutrients (like tomatoes) and the foods they can are picked and canned immediately so they don't lose anything by laying around.
  • I don't see how the author can say that canned vegetables can be as nutritious as fresh, unless the fresh being compared is the picked-before-ripe-and-probably-imported variety. The canning process often damages a lot of essential nutrients.
