Healthy eating doesn't have to cost a fortune. Try to plan your meals for the week and make a clear grocery list to avoid buying unnecessary items. Double the recipe of your favourite dinners so that you can use leftovers for lunch the next day. Focus on whole foods as they are often less expensive than their more processed counterparts. For example, bulk buying staples like dried beans, rice or pasta is much cheaper than buying tinned beans or pre-cooked grains. Equally, choose generic brands where you can as these are often the same quality, just less expensive. Finally, buy cheaper cuts of meat (or mix in plant-based protein options) which are great to use in soups, stews and burritos.
