Healthy on a Budget: Shop Smart

Smart food shopping is certainly required if you are interested in improving your health. Here are a few things that can reduce cost and boost health for you and your family.

Shop on Full: Eat something balanced and beneficial before you shop. This simple action seriously reduces junk food and impulse buys.

Choose Label Free Items: No one checks the label on an apple or a head of cabbage. You can be confident that it’s all good, especially when it’s organic. Consider including primarily single ingredient items in your basket. For example, make rice pilaf from scratch instead buying a prepared pack of rice pilaf mix.

Shop With Meals in Mind: Based on your weekly schedule, decide ahead of time what meals would be best on which days. Then shop with a list that reflects at least 2-3 meals and stick to it.

Finally, always include the highest quality natural foods you can possibly afford.

Remember: High quality food = high quality health.
