While many of us are well aware that eating healthy is the right thing to do, the price tag (or our perception of the price tag) is the number one reason why we simply do not. Convenience and comfort run the show when it comes to our diets and our overall health is suffering y’all. Well ladies, here’s the good news: you can have a healthy diet without going broke. I know just how to do so and am excited to share these RAD tips with you.

Dine In More & Dine Out Less

The number one way to save more money when it comes to your healthy diet is to dine in more and dine out less. This will take more prepping and planning than you may be used to (see below), however the cash you stash and the pounds you will most likely drop both make this in house dining experience totally worth it. For instance the average salad in New York city costs close to $10. Why not spend that same amount of dough at the grocery store and make your own salads for close to a week? Need help? Read this

Change Things Up With The Seasons

When the seasons change so should your menu. Eating seasonal produce is cheaper when you eat in season ladies, so next time you find yourself bored with yet another night of steamed broccoli peruse the produce aisle for a healthy swap. This will not only expand your palate but your pocket book will appreciate the change of pace too. In love with certain fruits and veggies year round? Well before you drop all your cash for cherries check out the frozen section. Frozen produce is just as healthy as fresh produce, and when out of season, much cheaper. 

Grow Your Own Grub

Another way to stay in control of your diet is to grow your own grub. Our first lady has shown us that gardening is RAD so if you are up for the challenge make gardening your new hobby sis. The pride coupled with the money you’ll save makes this tip worth exploring. However if you are a city girl like me and the only land you see is a few miles away, then start small and grow some of your favorite herbs indoors. 

Stay Local

When it comes to healthy goodness, the closer to home it is the better it is for you (if you ask me). By buying from local farms or farmer’s markets you not only get better quality food but you are supporting your community in a super RAD way. But here’s the twist – local food costs a bit more, but here’s another twist – when you buy a lot many farmers give you free stuff. See there, healthy karma does exist. 

Here’s The Deal, Plan Your Meal

Unless you are interested in blowing money fast at the supermarket then do yourself a solid and quickly make a plan. Planning your meals is an easy and excellent way to save money because when you head down aisle 10 with a mission you are less likely to toss other unnecessary items into your basket. 

Meat Free Equals Debt Free

Animal protein is usually the priciest item on your plate, so if you’re really in a bind and want to save some money go meat free a couple nights a week. Veggies like mushrooms and eggplant have a natural meaty texture and therefore serve as great substitutes in burgers, stews and sauces.
