Tips For Eating Healthy On A Budget


With four years of students having easy access to cafeteria food, new grads might find the “real world” a little bit more challenging. See how you and your grads can still eat healthy, even on a budget. Julie Wampler runs a food blog and say that she
understands why people might be intimidated about cooking dinner on a regular basis. With
take out being the obvious next choice, Julie says that it can become rather expensive and take up
a lot of your budget. Instead she suggests: Julie: “Grains, chicken – everyone loves
chicken, some people don’t eat red meat – and lots of vegetables, ’cause you can actually
use vegetables to be the bulk of your meal, and it’ll still fill you up.” Another helpful tip is filling up early in
the morning, bringing snacks into the office and no late night eating. These choices can help sustain your energy throughout the day and also, it decreases your food budget. Julie suggests creating shopping lists for the weekends
to help you stay on track, but don’t forget to have fun. Julie: “If you want to try something and
go out of your comfort zone, that’s great because that’s what cooking is all about.
You take a base and then you just add on to it to get creative and then, you never know, what if it works out and you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh!’” You can see Julie’s food blog online at
