This year, make an effort to buy local and buy organic. If you are fortunate enough to live near a farmer’s market, go and give it a try! These produce are the freshest and most nutritious for you so make a point to shop here. In terms of going organic, use the extra money to get celery, spinach, kale, and collard greens, potatoes, lettuce, apples, and strawberries. These are often laden with chemicals and are great choices to invest in and buy organic. You can save up on other purchases by using coupons like this SAVE 50¢ on any ONE (1) KRAFT Mayo or MIRACLE WHIP Dressing. Other produce that you can buy regular are onions, avocados, kiwi, eggplant, sweet potatoes, asparagus, and mangoes. They tested clean even when bought in non-organic form.
There are simple recipes that you can make in less time for the delivery to come in so give it a try. The key here is meal planning and advanced preparations. The best benefit is you know what is in your food and you definitely save more money while getting bigger and better portions. Additionally, you can use coupons like this SAVE $0.55 on any one (1) package of Frigo Cheese Heads Snack Cheese (8-count or larger) to save up in shopping for your ingredients. Looking for coupons may seem like an added step but it is every bit worth it.

Also, don’t forget to add in the eggs to complete the meal. Don’t worry about taking out the yolk. According to studies, there is no need to do so and in fact the healthiest part of the egg may be the yolk! Forget the egg-white omelet and egg substitute. The yolk is rich in choline, a nutrient similar to a B vitamin, and which most adults lack. Choline is an important part of the cell membrane, especially those in the brain. Some of the best sources of choline are egg yolk, butter, peanuts, oats, and soybeans. Fill up your cart with these items and provide more nourishment to your body. Remember to look for coupons to save up on everything that you buy.
Eat smarter and save more at the same time this 2015! If you eat a lot of fast food, the first step is to cut down on it one meal at a time, until you eliminate the whole thing altogether.

Additionally, you can always repurpose leftovers and make meals that will last you for an entire week. Anything that you can make into a sandwich after works well.
