The big myth I heard most during 40 years of nursing and training others about pregnancy, childbirth, nutrition and good health, is that “eating healthy is too expensive.”
It may sometimes take some planning and time in the kitchen, but eating healthy on a budget is possible. Plus, it could save far more health related expenses in the future. Plan meals and snacks around sales.
Here are ways to make it happen:
🔹Shop seasonally, especially with fruits and vegetables.
🔹Create a shopping list and stick to it.
🔹Stock up on staples, such as brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, dried beans and lentils, when on sale.
🔹Consider purchasing frozen or canned fruits and vegetables as an alternative to fresh products. Be sure to check the ingredient list to avoid items with added sugars or salt.
