Healthy food can be expensive
It often can be very difficult to eat well when you are on a budget. However, there are many ways to save money and still eat real and healthy food. Here at The Healthy Mummy, we try to make it as simple and easy as possible for you to achieve your goals and feel good on a budget. Check out these money saving tips from real mums.
Here are 3 ways to eat healthy on a budget.
Plan your meals
Planning and writing a budget-friendly meal plan is essential when you want to save money at the grocery store. The best way is to take one day per week to plan your meals for the upcoming week. The Healthy Mummy challenge app has made it easier for you by including a grocery list for specific meals.
It is a good idea to scan your fridge and cabinets to see what you already have. That way you are not doubling up and spending more money unnecessarily. You will often find the staples hidden at the back of your pantry that can be used.
Stick to your grocery list
Once you have planned your meals and looked at the grocery list for those meals, stick to it – it is important not to stray as it can be very easy to get sidetracked at the grocery store. The best advice is never to food shop when you are hungry.
Another useful thing about The Healthy Mummy app is that you always have it with you and you can never lose those bits of paper.
Cook large portions and keep the leftovers
Cooking larger meals can save you both time as well as money. There are many meal prepping tips on a budget from real mums. Leftovers can be used for other meals and can be taken to work, they can also be frozen in single portion sizes and enjoyed later on.
