17. Use coupons and discount cards
This tip to eat healthy on a low budget is something everyone should take advantage of. For example with a loyalty card every time I buy something I get points which turn into coupons and coupons turn into money saving.
Take advantage of these cards, apply for one if you don’t already have. They will not cost you a single cent, instead they will be saving you a lot of money in a year.
18. Don’t buy water
As crazy as it is, please don’t buy water. There are people out there who buy water and it costs money over time. Especially when you have to drink so much water a day (when you’re working out daily). If you’re one of those people who buy water invest in a filter and start saving money.
19. Quantity doesn’t always equal quality
Sometimes when people shop for foods they want to buy large quantity but it doesn’t always equal quality. For example if you were to buy wholemeal bread it will cost more in comparison to white bread. But wholemeal bread will fill you up for a much longer period of time. Therefore what you’re getting out of it is not lots of health benefits, but you will also consume less.
White bread will leave you hungry more quickly, therefore you’ll consume more. It’s not good for your health and it will lead to weight gain and also more money being spent.
20. Mix a cheap with an expensive item to get it’s benefits
Last but not least tip to eat healthy on a tight budget is to mix white rice with the brown rice. I often do this because the brown rice is way more expensive but I still want to get those nutrients from it. And this is also a good method to introduce brown rice into your diet, because not many people like it.
These are my personal tips to eat healthy and to live on a budget. Apply these tips, plan a little bit ahead regards to the healthy food you need and match that with your budget. You will be able to live healthy, eat healthy, lose weight, feel good and look your best.
