Healthy Eating on a Budget

At times, eating healthy can be a challenge and you may not have enough money or time to do so. In today's article, we want to share some tips to help you eat healthy on a tight budget. The next time you head to the grocery store, try some of these tips out:

Check the Unit Price
You always want the best bang for your buck – checking the unit price on items can help you buy more and save money in the long run. When comparing items in the store, the price label will have a “Unit Price” section. The Unit price will tell you how much you are getting for the unit (pound, ounce, or liter). In the example below, the 32 oz. yogurt is a better deal. You can buy the larger container and divide the yogurt into smaller containers at home.
