Making food choices toward a healthy lifestyle can be easy as long as you know how to eat properly. Nutrition is a very important part of daily life and should become a habit. The simple tasks include balancing calories, increasing foods such as fruits, whole grains and vegetables, and reducing foods that are high in sodium and sugary drinks.
From the website Choosemyplate.gov, there are hundreds of articles to help you with nutrition and exercise. One that many people can relate to is “Eating Better on a Budget”. Eating healthy is usually more expensive, thus, we need to get as much as we can out of our money. In this article, the top 10 tips to help you stretch your money are as follows:
1. Plan, plan, plan
2. Get the best price
3. Compare and contrast
4. Buy in bulk
5. Buy in season
6. Convenience costs
7. Easy on your wallet
8. Cook once…eat all week!
9. Get your creative juices flowing
10. Eating out
