Eating healthy on a budget, is it possible?

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Yes, I know eating healthy does cost more. But it doesn't have to break the bank. Today I made this wonderful salad for my family of five for three dollars. That's like 60 cents a serving. You really can't do better than that. We have an Aldi we are able to shop at. Today they had grape tomatoes for just 79 cents. If you have an Aldi where you are stop in there sometime and just try them. They have an awesome line of food products called Fit and Active. Also they have awesome deals on their fresh produce. I know everyone does not have an Aldi. But maybe you have a Save-A-Lot or some other little place that offers cheaper groceries without all the conveniences of a regular grocery store. I have to bag my own groceries. And there aren't any fancy displays. But it's well worth it in the end. Also during the summer I grow my own garden. There are even some things you can grow in the fall and spring. And sometimes you can get some really good deals at farmers market. It may take some time to find what's out there. But it's worth it!

    I have to try it. It opened not to far away from me not long ago. My girlfriend raves about it. She does buy a variety of things. Now I must go try it...... I try to by @ the local farm markets as much as possible when it comes to produce.

    Omg, we love Aldi! We have been shopping there for a couple years. I got my weight machine there and when I use it I love it! If I'm not going to Whole Foods, which is an hour away, I get produce at Aldi and Sam's club. I like that they have organic milk and often plant based milk too. I have to eat gluten free so there aren't many things I can buy at Aldi but dairy, produce and some meat.
