Tips for Saving Money While Eating Well

By Dietetic Intern Amanda Last, BSc.

Plan Ahead Planning your meals ahead of time will help visualize what you want to buy and help you to recognize if you are eating a balanced diet that has variety, moderation, and adequacy. By planning ahead you can also use up ingredients you already have and not waste ingredients, time and money. Make a list Making a list of all the ingredients you need for the week will ensure that you don't overspend when you are shopping. Having a list on hand acts as a reminder so you don't forget to purchase the items you need later, running the risk of spending more on convenience items. Budgeting A huge factor in saving money and avoiding overspending is creating and sticking to a budget. Try setting a budget for your groceries and treats. Think about what you can afford to spend and stick to it the best you can. Shop after you Eat! Shopping when your hungry is always a struggle. As soon as you enter the market or store, the aromas draw you in, and before you know it you bought four extra things you didn't have money for. Going in with a little something in your stomach will help you to focus on enjoying the market while getting what you need to get. Cooking and Freezing Bulk Recipes Using simple recipes, bulk cooking and freezing can help you save. Freezing foods, either straight from the market or after you make a meal means there is an extra meal waiting for you later. All you have to do is defrost it and possibly heat it up. This also decreases the chance of waste from foods going bad before you get to them. Bulk freezing even helps all those singles and couples out there to enjoy a variety of foods throughout the week without having to eat up the same ingredients throughout the entire week. If you can, drink tap water! Simply fill up a glass or a reusable bottle and avoid paying for a bottle of water. Being environmentally friendly can save you money! Store Your Foods in the Right Place Storing your foods at the right temperature and location will help to maintain the quality and nutritional value of foods and avoid waste. Want to know how to properly store your produce? Ask your local farmer or check out the following websites:

Shop at your Local Farmers' Market Most of the time, local and in-season produce is more affordable than imported fruits and veggies! The market also provides seasonal fruits and vegetables which helps you to support more environmentally friendly and sustainable food practices. Craving something that is out of season? We have canned goods like Gold Island Bakery's canned tomatoes made from Halifax Brewery Market tomatoes and frozen foods like Blueberries at the Neighbourhood Goods Store.
