I'm a college student and eating healthy is really hard on my diet. Do you have any tips on how to eat healthy and while on a budget?
I can definitely understand your issue. I've been there and It can definitely be difficult. That's the bad news. The good news is that I do have a few tips to help you out. First, buy canned vegetables and frozen vegetables in bulk at a warehouse store like Costco. Fresh is best I know, but we're talking budget.
You can also try growing your own vegetables.It's easier than most people think.
Another tip is to buy frozen chicken breasts. They're a lot cheaper than fresh chicken breasts, and if you marinate them just right, they can taste delicious.
Protein sources will probably be the most problematic if you're on a budget. Investing in a protein powder can be very helpful. I usually get a 5 pound bucket and it lasts me about a month. I used to get the 10 pound bag from Optimum Nutrition, but I like the fact the 5 pound bucket is easier to keep sealed.
