The secret to discounted produce: Ask!

How to save AND eat healthy.

Do you think that eating healthy can get expensive?

On Today.com I answered a question from a Facebook Fan that helps solve just this problem.

Jennifer asked: Most coupons I find are for junky processed food. It’s hard to save money and eat natural, organic or diet-friendly food. What’s your advice?

My advice:

  • Plant your vegetables and fruit in the backyard (like I used to do with my mom growing up.)
  • Check your grocery store for the discount coupons – each week your grocer will come out with deals, specials, and discounts – these flyers are usually right when you walk in – read those advertisements so don’t miss on some great savings.
  • Talk to the store manager about when they put the produce on sale – there is usually a specific day that stores will decide to put the fruits and veggies on sale.

I hope this advice helps you eat healthy this summer while continuing to save! And let me know, what do you do to eat healthy without breaking the bank?
