I'm nutritionist, Siona Sammartino, and I'm sharing my tips to cut costs without cutting nutrition. So, you wanna eat healthier but you're worried you can't afford it. I hear this all the time. And, just the thought of buying organic, for example, can send ya over the edge. Well, not to worry. I got ya covered with my money saving tips that won't compromise your nutrition. My number one tip for saving money, hands down, is to buy in bulk. Spices, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole greens, flours, sweeteners, almond butter, maple syrup, and even organic extra virgin olive oil, can all be purchased in bulk. Now, every store, in every state, of course, is gonna have different prices, but for example, when I bought cinnamon in bulk, I spent 61 cents. And, for the same amount that I would've purchased in a bottle, it cost five dollars more. I saved five dollars. That's huge. And, in addition, when you buy in bulk, you can buy only what you need. This is gonna make sure that you reduce waste, it's gonna save you money in the long run, and it's gonna help to make sure that your flavors in your food are still vibrant and that your nutrients are in tact. My next tip is to cook up some beans, and when you're making a meat recipe, sub out half of the meat with cooked beans. Not only is this gonna save you money, but it's gonna add fiber and still pack a punch of flavor. Another way to save money is to shop at your farmer's market for seasonal produce. Very often, farmers are more than willing to bargain with you. Lastly, if you wanna stretch your dollar even further, reserve organic for meat, poultry and eggs, as these tend to be concentrated in antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, everything you don't want. And, if you do wanna buy organic fruits and vegetables, the Environmental Workers Group has compiled two lists, the Clean 15, and the Dirty Dozen, and these can help you decide which vegetables are actually worth buying organic. If all else fails, remember to buy in bulk, and enjoy my money saving tips!
