Learn how to eat healthy without breaking the bank by following these budget-friendly tips for clean eating.
Published on March 1st, 2024, changing your lifestyle habits can be a daunting task. However, the payoff is worth it as it leads to a healthier life and potentially increased earning potential. One of the most challenging habits to change is our eating habits, especially with the abundance of fast food and junk food options available. Additionally, the rising prices of food make it even more challenging to eat clean. But fear not, here are some tips to help you trim the fat off your plate and shopping budget.

When shopping for organic products, it's essential to use discernment. The whole point of buying organic is to distance ourselves from harmful chemicals and pesticides. So, unless you have a sudden urge to buy organic almond soy protein milk just because it has the word "organic" in it, stick to purchasing organic produce. In particular, make sure to always buy these power foods organically: peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pears, grapes, spinach, lettuce, and potatoes.

It's also crucial to know your neighborhood and explore other stores. The grocery supply industry has evolved, and there's a store for almost any food you desire. So, don't limit yourself to just one store within a five-mile radius. Take the time to get to know other stores in your area. Some specialty food stores have seasonal sales and are willing to stock up on specific items if requested by customers. While it's important to consider your carbon footprint in terms of mileage, having at least two stores where you can find quality food at a reasonable price is worth it.

Coupons may seem like a tedious task, but they can add up to significant savings over time. Stores like Whole Foods offer deep discounts on items in their bulk section. Some stores even have coupons for discounts on your entire order. Don't just rely on paper coupons for specific items; ask the store if they have any storewide discounts available.

On a related note, a Nashville business owner is spreading love to small black businesses through a coupon book. This initiative not only supports local businesses but also helps customers save money. So, keep an eye out for any community coupon books or discount programs that can help you save on your groceries. With these tips in mind, you can trim the fat off your plate and your shopping budget while still enjoying healthy, organic food.
