Eating Well for Less
Fruits and Vegetables
You must follow the seasons, both for the sake of taste and your wallet.
When it comes to vegetables, the choice can seem limited, especially in the winter, with endless carrots, cabbages, squashes, turnips, potatoes, parsnips, but the way you prepare them will make all the difference. Monitor the offers on large bags of frozen vegetables. In summer, if you can, cultivate your own vegetable garden and above all, cook and freeze to make provisions for yourself.
When it comes to fruits, aside from apples and bananas, that are generally affordable to everyone, you must check special offers. You can top up your intake of fruits with canned fruits.
Buy rice, barley and bran in bulk. Monitor the offers on pasta. Forget breakfast cereals and choose instead ready to cook oat flakes to make your granola. Choose wholegrain bread which, for the same price as white bread, contains more fiber and is more satiating. Cook your muffins and pancakes at home to save money and use top quality fresh ingredients.
