Eating healthy doesn't have to cost a fortune. Even on a budget there are many creative and easy ways to make that dollar stretch while not compromising quality. Even adopting some of these clever tips will make a huge difference, especially if you are cooking for a whole family.

  • 💲 Proper Planning: Plan your meals, make a grocery list and actually stick to the list when shopping.
  • 💲 Prep At Home In Bulk: Buy your food in bulk family packs. Cook large portions, and portion out your meals in containers. you'll save on groceries, enjoy knowing your meals are ready to heat, avoid waste, limit leftovers and save on dining out.

  • 💲 Quit being a junkie: Ditch the junk food, seriously. You would be surprised to see how much you may be paying for fast food, coffee, lunch, snacks, soda, crackers, cookies, prepackaged meals and processed foods.
  • 💲 Save: Don't be shy to buy generic, stock up on sales, clip coupons, shop BOGO's, visit discount stores, buy less expensive cuts of meat.
  • 💲 Consider meatless. Your protein is usually the most expensive part of your meal. Meatless options can give you a bigger bang for your nutritional buck. Try having one or two days per week where you use other protein sources, such as legumes, hemp seeds, eggs or canned fish.
  • 💲 Packed lunch: Dining out can add up over the course of a year to a pretty hefty sum. If you followed the steps up to here then your fridge is full of prepped food for lunches. Carry bottled water, bring coffee with you, bring snacks to work.
