Dr. Caraballo’s Tips for Eating Healthy on a Budget

May 19, 2016

SSSL0241

It’s easy to assume eating healthy means having to spend more, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. Follow tips from Primary Care Physician, Dr. Caraballo, for eating healthy while staying on a budget:

Eat your fruits and vegetables while they are in season. Produce that is in season costs less and tastes better. Click here to find out what is currently in season.

Consider frozen vegetables. Not only are frozen vegetables cheaper but they also don’t go bad as quickly as fresh vegetables.

Create a grocery store list. There are plenty of healthy choices for under $2 a serving including spinach, beans and non-fat greek yogurt. Click here to see a full list.

Plan ahead. Planning your meals ahead of time ensures you won’t be tempted by the fast food drive-thru. Consider making Sunday a planning day for your meals of the week.

Use herbs and spices. They can be a quick way to add a kick of flavor to any meal.
