We all want to eat healthier, but most times, it seems like eating healthy comes with a price. So, put some money back in your wallet with these tips to save money on eating healthier and having superfoods.

  • The most significant thing to do is to stick to your list! Don’t be caught buying impulsively, as that costs you more in the long run, and those impulse buys are often not very healthy.
  • Make smarter choices. Do not pick up junk food; you will save a ton of money. Junk food costs us more in the long run, never mind what it does to the body. It costs us thousands in medical bills and other related expenses. Junk food only seems cheaper.

Buy the highest quality food. This is not where you should cut corners, as high-quality food is healthier for you than low-quality food. Buy foods that you eat a lot of at the highest quality.

  • Buy cheaper cuts of meat. This is especially important when buying organic, as more affordable cuts of organic meats are often of higher quality than regular meat.
  • Where it is available, join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) group. This is a great way to get healthy, local food at a great price. They often deliver, though check with a local farm first to see if you have to pick up the box and how often the shares come out.
  • Cook one large meal and use the leftovers when you don’t want to cook during the week, saving you money and allowing you to eat healthier. Plus, you’ll save money by not eating out on those nights. You can also use leftovers as a base for another meal, helping you to stretch your food budget even further. Soups and stews are an easy and fast way to use up leftovers.
  • Bake your snacks, and then you’ll not only save money, but you will know what’s in them. Many baked goods have mysterious ingredients to prolong shelf life, but if you make your own, you won’t have any of those.
  • Think frozen before fresh, especially when the fruit is out of season. One can use frozen berries in baked goods and smoothies, often saving lots of money over fresh berries.
  • Buy in bulk whenever possible, especially for items you use a lot. One example is to buy quick oats instead of instant oatmeal; you’ll save money and use quick oats in your baking. If you can, buy bulk when it is on sale or at a club or discount warehouse, you can save even more.

When trying to save money, make sure that you make every dollar spent count – don’t let food go to waste just because you got it on sale. If you can’t store it all, it will just go to waste, and you will have wasted your money.
