When you’re on a tight budget, planning your meals can be challenging. Eating healthy is even trickier. With the right tips, you can still maintain a healthy diet without breaking the bank.

Here are four tips on developing a healthy diet plan on a budget.

 Buy Seasonal Produce and Freeze
Buying fresh produce is great, but the costs can quickly add up without you noticing. Stick with buying seasonal produce and stock up when you encounter a great deal. You can buy food like corn, green peas, etc. and separate them into freezer bags for storage. They should last several months.

Learn to Enjoy Beans and Whole Grains
Whole grains like quinoa, brown rice, and freekeh are quite inexpensive and an excellent way to bulk up your meals. Black beans can help stretch meals, especially meats. You can incorporate beans with ground turkey for burgers and even chili. Whole grains can add bulk to a meal and keep you feeling fuller longer.

Plan Meals According to Market Sales
The local markets offer savings weekly. Use this to your advantage and consider planning your meals according to what’s on sale. Planning your meals accordingly may help you save even more money without affecting your nutrition. It may even allow you to get creative with your meals. Try to stick for the sales or bargain with sellers for the best possible shopping results!

Consider Budget-Friendly Meat Cuts
Meat lovers can still enjoy meat without having to spend a fortune every week. Opt for less expensive cuts of chicken thighs instead of breasts or meats with bone-in and skin on options. There are more flavorful and nutritious. Consider meat cuts such as beef skin, whole chickens, lamb necks, and more.

  1. My top tip is always buy the fruits and vegetables that are in season. They will always be so much cheaper. It’s a waste of money to buy cherries in winter for example, when you have oranges for probably a quarter of the price.

  2. Diet no can do. Saw your post in BLOG COMMENT EXCHANGE. Feel free to visit also my blog:

    1. I think growing your own greens and vegetables is a wise move, you can also assure that the food you are eating are organic.

  3. This came really on time,I’ve lost track of my diet the past few months and I’m really planning to make a change to improve my health ❤

  4. These are great tips! I always budget my meals for a two week period and based on all of the weekly sales. It’s amazing how much you can save when you do that.

  5. This is really a useful article. When we think of healthy diet, we also think it is expensive but with the right plan, it is really possible to save our money.

  6. This is great as it’s so hard to budget and meal plan at the same time when you’re working 24/7

  7. Nice tips on healthy diet plan, for the meantime I’m also creating my own diet routine and it’s very similar to this. Good thing to know!

  8. I agree it can be challenging! My husband and I were just talking the other day about how crazy it is that all the crap food is so cheap and easy to get, yet a healthy meals takes so much longer and costs more.
