How To Eat Well On A Budget
Summer is the season where everyone begins talking about being more healthy. Healthy eating can sometimes be SUPER expensive. However, there are so many perks of healthy eating such as:
  • More energy
  • Less sluggish feeling

  • Grow stronger
  • Improve your sleep
  • Strengthen immune system

 

That is why we have put together a guide of how to eat well on a budget. It doesn’t have to be super expensive and you can still have fun with food.

  • Make a shopping list – budget in advance so you don’t get too tempted walking around the supermarket
  • Meal prep – prep in bulk and prep meals throughout the week.
  • Buy frozen fruit and veg – stores like Tesco, Lidl, Aldi do great frozen fruit and smoothie mixes for breakfast
