Finding it hard to eat healthy food while on a budget? It’s easier than you think!
It’s much healthier, better for the planet, and other proteins are usually MUCH cheaper. Beans are super, super cheap and quinoa is cheaper than meat, fish, or chicken. Try to step away from the need to have meat, fish, or chicken at every supper and look for alternative proteins
Side dishes are usually cheaper than the main dish. So make your main dish smaller. But instead of going hungry, make more side dishes. Eat one piece of chicken breast and a lot of rice and salad. Start every main meal with a simple vegetable soup. This will fill you up and keep your budget down
Get in the habit of eating apples instead of fancy snack bars. Keep fruit and vegetables near you at work to give you something to eat, thereby resisting the vending machine temptations.
Amazon and Walmart sometimes have sales of healthy food that you can buy in bulk or get delivered. Keep a running list of how much things usually cost so that you can make sure you’re getting a good deal.
