How a family of four can eat healthy on a budget of $200 a week  | Globalnews.caBy Arti Patel for Globalnews.ca. Excerpt: Sticking to a grocery budget comes down to willpower, says registered dietitian Shahzadi Devje.

“It really depends on how motivated you are to save money and make changes to your habitual eating patterns,” she says. “Every family’s needs are different but there are certainly lots of ways you can cut your grocery bill and live on a $200 food budget. It’s all about being more conscious, simple and prudent — frills not included.”

Devje says there are plenty of ways to cut back on grocery and food costs. For starters, start cooking from scratch.

“It may mean extra work and planning, but it’s worth it if you want to save. When you buy ingredients versus prepared or convenience foods, it tends to be cheaper.”

She also recommends cooking in bulk and freezing for another day to save time. This is also a good way to use multiple ingredients at once, reducing food waste. “What’s more is you reduce your utility bill. These eco-friendly decisions and habits support a healthier planet.”
