5 Tips on How to Eat Healthy on a Budget

As a Registered Dietitian, dedicated to helping clients create and maintain healthy eating habits, I understand the importance of making nutritious choices on a budget, which requires practical strategies.

Here are five tips to help you make nutritious choices while keeping your budget in check.

1. Plan Ahead: By creating a weekly meal plan and shopping list, you can strategically purchase items in bulk, take advantage of sales, and avoid impulsive, less nutritious choices.

2. Meal Prep: Investing time in preparing meals or ingredients that can help build a balanced meal in advance not only saves money by reducing the need for convenience foods or ordering take out but also ensures that you have nutritious options readily available, making it easier to stick to a healthy diet.

3. Keep to the Basics: Focus on staple, budget-friendly items like whole grains, legumes, and affordable protein sources like eggs, canned tuna, yogurt, chicken. These provide a foundation for a balanced and budget friendly meal that is rich in fiber, protein and healthy fats.

4. Buy Fruits and Vegetables that are in Season: Seasonal produce is often more affordable and fresher, offering a variety of vitamins and antioxidants. Additionally, buying in-season fruits and vegetables supports local agriculture so it’s a win, win.

5. (However) Don’t Be Afraid of the Frozen Section: Frozen fruits and vegetables are typically just as nutritious as fresh ones, and they have a longer shelf life. Embracing the frozen section can help you stock up on produce without the risk of spoilage, contributing to both budget and convenience.
