Budget Friendly Shopping Tips

We recently connected with Chef Alli Sosna, an innovative Washington D.C. based chef who is doing some amazing work with an organization she founded called Micro-Greens. The company is helping solve the obesity problem by teaching people to cook healthy meals on a budget. She was kind enough to share some of her most popular tips with us.ali

  • Don’t always assume that canned means cheaper. Most of the time buying frozen is not only cheaper but also more nutrient packed.
  • Always wash beans in cans before you eat them, which will remove a lot of the sodium.
  • Do your best to buy in bulk as it reduces the amount of money you are paying per item. Onions are a great example of this since you can save almost 60% when you buy them in bulk (8 count) instead of individually.
  • Brown rice is only about 6 cents more per serving but it offers considerably more nutrients that your body loves and needs in order to be healthy. Buy a bulk bag of 5-20 pounds and try to eat it at least 2 times a week. This can dramatically reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes.
  • When in doubt, make soup. It’s versatile, offers huge money savings, and you can portion and freeze soups to get ready for winter!
