In reality, most people wrongly mistaken healthy food with an enormous budget.
Yes, eating one or two slices of salmon and/or beef per week is something that will skyrocket you budget.
However, there are ways you can consume healthy food even if you have a tight budget.
So, the next time you think “eating healthy is expensive”, stop for a minute, think for a minute, and try this plant-based, whole food healthy diet.
And the best part is, you need only $50 per week to manage it.
Quick note, the diet plan is for single people. And men budget can go little higher than women’s.
We all buy more than what we eat each week, so the first step is to limit your shopping to things you eat and need.
With that being said, let’s take a look how you can eat healthy on a budget-friendly, plant-based diet.
Start with fresh products ( $20 weekly )
When you are trying to eat healthy, the first stop in the grocery shop you want to visit is the fresh fruits and vegetables section.
Designate approximately $20 of your weekly budget for fresh products. Buying fresh food once a week ensures that you will always have some fresh fruits and veggies in your fridge.
But limit your purchase to $20. You can throw an extra $5 if you like.
For starters, get one bag of organic leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables (kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, cabbage).
Then, go for one head of cauliflower or broccoli and throw in some celery. It is time for some fruits, a bag of apples, oranges, bananas, everything will do.
Last, but not least, choose the side dishes, like onions, sweet potatoes, avocados. You can always replace avocado with another vegetable or buy more fruit.
Do not underestimate frozen fruits and vegetables
While the bulk of your money goes for fresh veggies and fruits, you should not neglect frozen foods, especially if you are trying to eat healthy.
People often mistake frozen food with refined, processed and unhealthy food.
However, frozen fruits and vegetables are actually healthy, and they are great if you are trying to grocery shop on a budget.
Frozen greens, broccoli, berries, all of them are excellent choices. Broccoli and spinach can always be bought frozen, and they are cheaper than fresh.
Mixed vegetables and frozen greens are also must haves. Just remember, the frozen section is last on your list, and it is where you spend your remaining money from the $50 per week budget.
