As preparing healthy food is often expensive and time-consuming, it can be difficult to stick to your New Year’s resolution.
How can you eat healthy on a budget?
Cook at home. Restaurants are expensive and the food is usually overflowing with calories.
Quick tips from the experts:
- Fill your kitchen with staple foods like salt, pepper, olive oil, rice, flour, canned beans and chicken broth.
- Buy low-cost, energy-dense foods like beans, grains, dairy and eggs.
- Make your own salad dressing.
- Stop buying juice and pop and make your own coffee/tea at home.
- Buy and cook in bulk. Foods like rice, oil, frozen fruits and veggies will keep for several months.
