Eat Healthy on a Tight Budget

In my last post, I asked if it is possible to eat healthy on a budget. Carrie shared some tips that I wanted to highlight. She says, "Yes! It is possible." Here are her great tips:
  • Prepare ground meat, baked or grilled chicken, etc. in bulk.
  • Freeze the meats in meal-sized portions so all you have to do is grab from the freezer.  
  • Same goes for fresh veggies, fruits, etc.  
  • Spend your time on the front end and mass prepare when possible.  
  • On the back end, grab what you need, add seasonings, veggies, etc. and your meal is about 30 - 45 min. away from serving.  
  • Bulk rice stores in freezer, as does flour, if you find bargains on larger quantities than you need.  
  • If freezer space is at a premium, store rice, flour (grains) tightly sealed as possible in plastic or glass with a bay leaf. Bay leaves are wonderful deterrents against bugs!
Thanks for those timely suggestions, Carrie!
