Eating well is vital to our overall health. Breaking the bank to buy food of high quality is painful and sometimes not possible. Here are some tips to minimize your grocery bill but still consume nutrient-dense food.
- Buy foods in bulk. For example, a 16 oz spinach container is a better deal than the standard 5 oz container. Feeling concerned because you don’t think you can eat all of that fresh spinach before it expires? No worries because that leads to the next point!
- You can take that almost at peak spinach and freeze it. Package it in a ziplock bag or make individual smoothie packs and use it later. The same goes for other produce that’s about to be overripe. Bananas, berries, and other fruits freeze well to use later.
- Speaking of frozen food, spend more time in the frozen isle browsing the vegetables. Vegetables that have been flash frozen have similar nutrient stats to fresh vegetables. Utilize frozen vegetables when you can to shave a little extra from your grocery bill. They are great to use in soups or in dishes where you want to sneak in a little extra nutritional value!
