Tips for Healthy Cooking at Home

Grocery store trips don’t have to be stressful. While shopping, limit your impulsive purchases, or the number of items you didn’t plan to buy while shopping. Only buy the items that you need.

At the grocery store, look for cheaper cuts of meat, such as pork chops or ground beef, and opt-in for frozen fruits and vegetables. Don’t be afraid to buy the store brand to save money, as it’s generally cheaper and the same quality as the name brands!

If you’d rather buy in bulk to stop your weekly visits to the store, consider joining a membership warehouse club to get the best deals.

Don’t have enough time to cook at home? Invest in a slow cooker, which allows you to put your food in and carry on with your day until it’s time to eat. Many things can be made in a slow cooker, such as soups, stews, dips, meats, or even tasty pasta recipes.
