I hear this all the time. And it’s true. Nutritious, nutrient dense, whole fresh food costs more than the stuff in boxes in the center of the store. (And the craziness of that would be a whole other post…) But avoiding the cheap stuff in boxes ensures you’ll spend less on healthcare for years to come, so let’s look at the ways that we CAN cut costs on real food.
1. Plan your meals. You make a calendar and put each day’s meal on it, then purchase what you need for those meals. I’m not much of a meal planner myself, but I hear that it works really well. 🙂 I’m more of a “keep a lot of basics in stock and check Pinterest before I cook” kinda girl.
