Healthy eating does not have to be expensive or difficult. We can encourage our families to live healthier lifestyles and not break the budget!
Keep your eyes peeled for buy 1 get 1 free offers. Supermarkets are all getting involved in helping create a healthier place to live in and have great deals on more often than not.
Buy your fruit and veg loose. This works out as much cheaper than buying it packaged and means you will only buy what you need rather than waste it.
Go to local markets – that way you support the production of local farmers and get great prices.
Fruit is cheaper than those chocolate snacks! Go for the cheaper option and stay slim!
Don’t throw out leftover veg – pop it into a homemade stew or soup and cook then freeze. Cooking these dishes at home is healthier and cheaper than buying them in anyway!
Canned veg and fruit is a great thing to have in the house for when those pennies are running low. Go for the supermarket brand and keep away from ones with added salt and sugar.
Eating little and often is said to be best for you. If you eat 5 “meals” a day – and include a piece of fruit or veg in each “meal” then you have got all of your 5 a day in!!
For those days when you fancy a treat – try some homemade banana ice cream, courtesy of rawloveuk.com.
You will need
3-4 frozen bananas
Apple Juice (to soak the bananas in to defrost them slightly)
Honey (to sweeten)
Using a hand blender – mix all ingredients until they turn to ice cream.
