It is possible to be on a healthy eating plan without breaking your budget. Here are a few tips to help you stick to stick to your eating plan.
- Don’t skip meals. You might think that skipping meals will save you money, but you’ll probably spend more as you’ll buy junk food and snacks when you get hungry. Rather cook your own healthy meals regularly.
- Watch those portions. The more you eat, the more you spend on food. A second serving of dinner might sound tempting, but you could have it for lunch tomorrow instead. Eat small meals of healthy foods, particularly fruit and veggies, throughout the day and stay full.
- Drink water. Water is far cheaper than fizzy drinks and juices. It has many health benefits and drinking at least eight glasses a day will ensure you stay hydrated.
- Have breakfast. It doesn’t have to be a full English; one cup of cereal will do the trick. Nkosi explains that eating breakfast makes you less likely to want to tuck into something unhealthy later on.
- Have more fruit. Fruit is healthy and a better snack than chips or sweets. Not only is it cheaper than junk food, it will keep you feeling fuller for longer.
