Fluctuating prices may make some of your familiar healthy habits feel like too much of an indulgance, but be assured that successfully managing your weekly grocery budget without sacrificing quality is possible.
Marie Simmons, author of Fresh & Fast: Inspired Cooking for Every Season and Every Day, says “Eating well and following a healthful diet while minding your food dollars can be both delicious and affordable with a little advance planning.” Add a few savvy shopping tips and you'll get satisfying meals that won’t devour the family pocketbook.
Along with the basics—planning meals in advance, shopping with a list, downloading and clipping store coupons—many food items are also terrific buys for the person who’s both health conscious and budget-minded. Choose nutrient-rich foods to earn the most health benefits per dollars spent.
Judith H. Dern writes and cooks in Seattle where her favorite frugal dish is black bean chili.
