When we walk into the grocery store these days we cannot help but notice how expensive everything has become. I was looking at cheese the other day and was flabbergasted at the price. I just passed it by.
National nutrition experts from Nationwide Children’s Hospital have come together to help us save some money at the grocery store with some helpful tips.
— Don’t buy organic if you don’t have to.
— Don’t buy designer fruits like pomegranates and acai fruit. Blueberries and plums are cheaper and have the same nutritional content.
— Avoid buying pre-packaged foods. Why buy bagged lettuce when it’s cheaper to buy a head of lettuce?
— Don’t assume fresh is always best. Frozen fruits and vegetables are cheaper and have the same nutritional value.
— Buy in bulk. The experts suggest buying large amounts of fruits during the summer when they’re cheaper and freezing them to ear all year long.
