Making health and nutrition a priority during this time can be challenging. Here are some tips to help.

  • Think nutrition. The healthiest meals emphasize whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. If fresh fruits and veggies are too costly, canned and frozen fruits and vegetables provide the same nutrients.

  • Go easy on the frozen dinners—most are high in sodium, fat, and calories.

  • Limit purchases of tempting foods like chips, sodas, cookies, and ice cream. They are high in empty calories and run up your grocery bill.

  • Think of items that will last longer- cranberries, nuts, eggs, bread, etc.

  • Try some new recipes- There are lots of great recipes on the internet! Look for those that call for only a few ingredients and use common kitchen tools.

Eat healthy, stay healthy!
