5 Tips For Eating Well In Tough Economic Times

Provided By: 

   
   

There’s no question that many people are having difficulty keeping up with household and food expenses in these tough economic times. This is especially true for those who have lost a job or are now working in lower paying jobs out of necessity. I often hear people complain that they would like to eat healthier, but it’s just too expensive to buy the right foods. While it is true that many inexpensive sale items you see at the grocery store are the foods with poor nutritional value, there are still a number of things you can do to eat well without spending a lot of money.

Here are 5 tips to help you do exactly that:

4. Stock up on beans and lentils (legumes). Legumes are extremely versatile and can be used in soups, stews, salads or side dishes. The cost is low, while the nutritional benefits are high. Legumes provide a great source of fiber, protein and minerals. Trying adding black beans and some spices to your next batch of ground meat or turkey so you can use less meat.

5. Avoid the coupon trap. Coupons can be of help when you are on a budget, and you should check them out. However, many coupons are for higher pri...
