It is a fact: food prices are high and healthy foods are expensive. However, you can enjoy all of the benefits of healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle without breaking the bank. Here are some tips to save money on healthy and nutritious food.

Fresh berries are often very expensive, especially when they are out of season. But did you know that frozen berries cost much less and they’re just as nutritious for you? Also an added benefit to frozen berries is the fact that you don’t have to worry about eating them before they go bad.

Instant oatmeal is awesome but for extra savings consider purchasing a huge canister of oats and oatmeal. While you enjoy that huge canister of oats, take out 1/2 cup of the quick oats, put them in a Tupperware container, and add hot water when I get to my destination. A delicious and nutritious meal awaits!

As a salty snack, homemade kale chips are a great swap to expensive veggie chips or potato chips. Your healthy snack will only be 50 calories per cup and hey are incredibly easy to make. Just spray washed kale with cooking spray, season with sea salt, and bake at 350° for about 15 minutes. One word is guaranteed to be uttered after one bite: YUM!

We all know we should eat more fish because of its high potency of omega-3s, but buying fresh fish is not always cheap. Instead, try using canned salmon, which is much less expensive, and still rich in omega-3s. Try fresh Caesar salad topped with salmon and enjoy a wonderful meal!
