Make sure the produce you’re buying is in season, and has been locally grown (imported veggies are generally more expensive, not to mention their high carbon footprint). You can usually get your fruit and vegetables much cheaper at the market, so visit as often as you can.
Vegetable mixes are another easy way to get in a bunch of variety. Pick up a bag of vegetable mix next time you’re at the supermarket – it’s packed with broccoli, carrot, beans and cauliflower and is a great way to up your veggie intake in one meal. Mission Nutrition also have a few handy tips and tricks to eating well on a budget.
Have a few bags of frozen peas, corn and broccoli on hand too. Because they’re snap-frozen, they retain their nutrients.
