Is Avoiding Junk Food Healthy for Your Wallet?

While most people believe that living a healthy lifestyle and trying to eat healthy foods is too expensive, there are many ways through which even the most frugal spender can eat healthy. One of the most obvious methods is eating canned fruit. A common misconception of health nuts is “fresher is better.” Canned fruit is very inexpensive when bought in bulk and retains the fruit’s original nutritional quality. However, when purchasing canned fruit you must look for cans in which the fruit is preserved in water or its own juice, rather than syrup. Along with canned fruit, frozen vegetables provide a similar way of retaining nutrition while being reserved. Eating canned fruit and frozen vegetables are both ways to enjoy seasonal goods unavailable to cold climates year-round. Another inexpensive method of eating healthy is to drink water over other beverages, and drink tap water over bottled water. Putting tap water from your own home into a thermos or bottle and drinking intermittently throughout the day is a great way to stay healthy. Canned tuna is another food that when bought in bulk is ridiculously inexpensive. Tuna contains as much protein as other meats and poultry and can be used in a plethora of recipes. Another way to eat healthy is to create your own snacks out of healthy, inexpensive items like granola, raisins, and dark chocolate.

When taking a trip to the grocery store, several steps can be taken to maximize savings in the quest for healthy food. These steps include collecting coupons from websites, newspapers, and magazines throughout the week, buying food in bulk for extra savings, buying generic foods over brand name products, buying frozen or canned foods, shopping with a prepared list, and eating before arriving. Studies have shown that people who shop for groceries while hungry will buy food they are unlikely to eat later and waste money.

In conclusion, eating healthy can be daunting at first, but with the aid of these tips and tricks, and helpful websites like this one, anyone can live a healthy lifestyle through eating healthy on a budget.

Can you afford to eat healthy? Can you afford not to?

Cost effectiveness.

Buy foods in bulk during the peak season and dry them so you don't have to worry about eating them all up in a week. During lean seasons, you not only have more food, you can enjoy delicacies that aren’t available or are offered as poor commercially dehydrated alternatives.
