3 Ways to Eat Healthy and Save Money in the New Year
If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to be healthier, there are many ways that you can do just that. Sticking to a regular exercise regimen, drinking plenty of water, getting lots of rest, and eating healthier are great ways of being healthier. If you want to eat healthier, but you think that eating healthy is more expensive than not, think again! Here are some tips from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on stretching your food dollars and eating right:
- Plan ahead. Before you leave your apartment, plan several meals that you’re going to make. Meals like stews, casseroles and stir-fries are great for getting lots of portions.
- Buy in bulk. Smart choices for buying foods in bulk include family packs of chicken breasts, steaks and fish, large bags of potatoes and frozen vegetables.
- Spice up your leftovers. Use leftover chicken in a stir-fry, over a garden salad, or to make chicken chili. Remember that throwing away food is throwing away money!
