Hi Beautiful People,

How can you eat healthy on a budget? Let’s get savvy and pop some tags in the supermarket! Here’s my tips on how to shop smarter not harder, when it comes to healthy eating and shopping on a budget;

  1. We make our bread, so we know exactly what’s in it. My mother-in-law makes her own yogurt in a styrofoam cooler, but I haven’t tried that – yet.

  2. When you grow an organic raised bed veggie garden in your backyard, patio, balcony, or community garden, you get the best possible produce for little cost as well as a healing sanctuary.

  3. My mother has been recently diagnosed with cancer, yesterday was her second chemotherapy, and all the food you described is what she is eating, good advice for other people who has or know someone who has cancer

  4. This is what I do. I have an idea of what I want for the week’s menu. I buy meats when it’s on sale. I also try to buy tougher cuts of meat and use my pressure cooker and / or crockpot to prepare them. I always start with fruits and veggies and create my weekly menu from that. I prepare almost all my meals from scratch. When I have time, I also can seasonal fruits and veggies.

  5. I’ve come to realize that healthy eating doesn’t have to be that expensive if you do it right. There is a group that I have mentioned in my blog post called ladyboss lifestyle and the girl who runs it give all kinds of recipes, tips, inspirational videos on how to eat healthy and most of her recipes are cheap too. I love it.

  6. I buy protein powder tubs. It takes me a long time to go through them. I used the protein powder in cereal and oatmeal. It’s great because I don’t crave sugar a lot during the day and it fills me up. You need a balance of protein and carbs. I promote protein powder on my blog if anyone is interested.

  7. Anna, My husband and I are trying to switch to a better diet and exercise plan. I’ve enjoyed your blogs so much that I’m following you now.Thank you Thank you for the health info. and for posting the Healthy Eating on a Budget blog from SarahCurtis Health.

    Thank you for visiting my website, I’m glad you liked the series on National Farmers Market Week.
