Source: Military Community and Family Policy (MC&FP) Weekly eNewsletter

As daily expenses increase some may wonder how it is even possible to eat healthy on a budget. With a few simple steps, this daunting task can become much more manageable. For the next three weeks we're going to take a look at how we can eat on a budget by planning, purchasing and preparing. For step one, take a look below on how you can plan to help you eat on a budget.

  • Plan meals and snacks for the week according to an established budget.


  • Find quick and easy recipes online.


  • Include meals that will "stretch" expensive food items (stews, casseroles, stir‐fried dishes).


  • Make a grocery list.


  • Check for sales and coupons in the local paper or online and consider discount stores.


  • Ask about a loyalty card at your grocery store.
