Your food costs can be an important part of the monthly budget, particularly if you consume a lot of fast foods or purchase them. Yet when money is scarce we still start relying on inexpensive prepared meals that do not benefit our bodies.
Eating poorly usually means more frequent sickness, which in the form of medical treatment also brings a secondary expense. Basically you’re not even saving money at all.
But fear not-for less money, there is a way to eat well. It takes a little more time and energy but in the end it’s completely worth it. You’ll have to give up the daily restaurant meals for a while, but you might find that you’re saving enough money on food to re-enter the mix with an occasional indulgence.
