Eating Healthy on a Budget

Just because money is tight does not mean that you cannot feed your family nutritional foods. Unfortunately many processed foods are inexpensive, driving mother's to buy them for their convenience and cost effectiveness. Processed foods do not have to be completely avoided, but they should not make up the bulk of our diets. Another tempting dinner choice for those on a tight budget and time constraints is the dollar menu at our favorite fast food joints. These are okay as occasional treats but they fall extremely short of meeting even the basic nutritional needs. In the "Budget Conscious" section of this site, I will give you tips on quick and inexpensive family meals as well as any current coupons or sales that can help you buy nutritional foods for your family that are affordable.
