Buying Healthy FoodsNowaday, it is important to learn how to stretch out our food budget yet still eating healthy foods. It is still possible to enjoy healthy food on any budget; it just take a little knowledge, enough time, and smart planning. Since living on a budget becomes more important, here are some way to do it:

1. Cut out junk foods. Evaluate how much money you are spending on items such as soda (regular or diet), juice, packages of cookies, crackers, prepackaged meals, processed foods, etc. Limit or cut out completely these unhealthy foods. Both your wallet and your body will be happy.

2. Eat out less. Even just reducing your meals out by 1 or 2 times per week can save you as much as $25 per week. This is an easy way to save money and even have some extra to spend on higher quality foods.

3. Be strict on your grocery list. The more prepared you are when you get to the store the less impulse purchases you will make. So write out a grocery list and stick to it.

4. Cook large portions of foods ahead. It saves time to cook once and eat multiple times. One idea is to make a big pot of soup at the beginning of the week or whenever you go food shopping. When you don’t feel like cooking, help yourself to a hearty bowlful along with a green salad. This makes a nutritious lunch or dinner anytime.
