Money Saving Meal Prep Grocery Tips

On average I spend ~$60-100 CAD ($46-77 USD) for 7 days worth of food (for myself). Some people think that’s super expensive but the truth is, eating out is what actually takes a toll on your wallet + health. Invest in yourself and check out my money savings tips ?!
.
? Make a list based on what you’re cooking, this keeps you from throwing out those green beans that looked so delicious but didn’t fit your prep plans.
.
?Buy veggies that are in season and/or local they’re usually cheaper!
.
?Shop the frozen section! Buying fruit and veggies out of season adds up. Frozen produce contain a lot of nutrients because they are picked at their peak. Most produce is picked before its ripe to take into account shipping time.
.
?Buy in bulk! Sometimes buying in bulk can be a lot cheaper. You can even freeze extra meat for the following week. Just remember to date it and check your freezer before you shop next time.
.
?Don’t over prep! Unplanned adventures or cravings can result in you throwing out prepped meals.
.
?Keep it simple. For example, Overnight oats are a super quick, cheap and delicious meal prep breakfast that can cost you less than $1. (recipe ?#justgetfitovernightoats)
.
?Prep what you can. Even prepping just a couple meals or snacks will save you time, money and a couple hundred calories for sure!
.
Still think it’s expensive? The average lunch in North America costs $6-12. That’s $30-$60 dollars a week. Plus your coffee, treats and don’t forget about breakfast & dinner!
.
It is completely possible to make prepping affordable. Sometimes it just takes a little time and creativity! Some weeks I can feed bae and I both for $75-100 CAD($58-78 USD) a week. That’s less than $5 dollars US a day.
