When it comes to frugal eating, healthy food is sometimes compromised for cheaper foods. For most of us budget savvy shoppers, we want to feed our family healthy foods, but for less money. How can you do this? Organic foods, fruits, vegetables, and meats are all expensive items on a grocery list. I will not claim to always have the cheapest grocery list, but I try to find a good balance between eating frugally and eating healthy foods. As a family of 3, we spend about $100-$125 per week on groceries. We eat a lot of organic fruits and veggies, mostly organic meats, and very few starches like pasta and rice. We also eat at home for almost every meal. On average, we eat out 1x per month, so the savings can be used to buy better food for home. Here is how my family and I eat healthy on a budget!
