How can i eat cheap and healthy for a week?

Cook large portions and use leftovers. As a former student who used to eat ALL of her meals at home, I feel uniquely qualified to write this post about healthy eating on a budget. Of course, meal planning is absolutely essential for eating healthy on a budget, making it one of the best ways to save money. I know it can seem very difficult to eat healthy on a budget, but there are different ways to save money at the grocery store that don't involve buying a lot of junk.

Pair this healthy eating plan with affordable recipes for breakfast and lunch to save even more during the week. You can also check out the recipes below for cheaper meals, or see more healthy dinner ideas below, most of which are also affordable. We've included a balanced amount of lean proteins from meat, fish, dairy products and plant foods, as well as energizing carbohydrates and healthy fats, including the all-important omega-3 variety. Stock up when beans go on sale and use them in wraps, salads, soups, stews, and more for healthy, inexpensive vegetable protein.

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are believed to contribute to heart health and help maintain skin, joints, and hormone balance.
