Want to make healthy family meals, lose weight and keep the costs down on your weekly shop? It can be done!
In fact, by planning your meals and using similar ingredients throughout the week, it could help you save thousands.
If you want to save money on groceries, you can read more about it our amazing NEW Healthy Mummy Magazine, which OUT NOW!
A couple of ways you can SAVE money in your weekly shop – find out more in the new magazine!
Purchase frozen veggies and fruit
Ditch fresh veggies and fruit and opt for frozen. You’re probably thinking, ‘fresh is always best’. But that may not always be the case!
Frozen is often better than fresh because it’s been placed into freezers as soon as it’s picked. Fresh produce could lose its nutrients after being transported many miles from the farms to the supermarkets.
Plus, poor temperature and light conditions in stores can cause fruit and veggies to wilt.
If you don’t have a plan of what you are intending to make for the week, you’re more likely to end up with too much.
Looking at a meal plan, like on our Healthy Mummy app, that uses similar ingredients for the week could help you save more than you realise.
Batch cooking is a great way to save yourself a lot of time and energy, especially during chaotic and hectic weeks.
Maybe you saw a discount on a whole chicken or leg of lamb in the supermarket? This is very cost-effective as you are buying in bulk, and there may be many significant discounts for purchasing food in larger quantities at your local grocer.
This one isn’t always easy to do, but if you shop around at different supermarkets, you can often compare the prices for the items you need and see the different offers each store has.
Alternatively, shop online. You can visually see your bill tally up before you pay for things. If you need to, you can cull a few items to ensure you come in under budget.
