Tips to save on fruits & vegetables
She says eating what's in season will save you loads of money in the long run.
“Those things are expensive, and if we don't pay attention to what is seasonal, then they are going to be even more expensive,” says Banister.
When you eat what's in season you are buying produce that is in high supply, which lowers the price. Other than price the produce will taste better and will be picked at better times, preserving the nutrients. So not only do you save money but you eat healthier as well.
“When they say that to me, I frequently will ask them, when did you make that decision that I don't like vegetables, and they will say I haven't liked vegetables since I was five. So, my response to that is how many other life management decisions did you make at the age of five,” says Banister.
Nutrition specialists recommend roasting veggies, especially if you don't like them much. This limits the "stinky " smell and allows you to better control the flavor with seasoning. Healthy eating guidelines suggest making sure half of your plate is full of veggies, but be ready, if you haven't been focusing on eating healthy - it may take time to get used to it.
