13 Ways for Nurses to Eat Cheap and Healthy

13 Ways for Nurses to Eat Cheap and HealthyIs it possible for nurses to eat healthfully on a budget? Not only is it possible, but your wallet and body will thank you for it! Here are a few tips:

  1. Buy “family size” packages of chicken. It’s inexpensive, healthy and a little bit goes a long way. At one time on a few baking trays, coat some with seasoning, others with BBQ sauce, some with dressing and some with spices. Once cooked, use as needed in soups, salads, stir frys and sandwiches for a low fat, healthy option.
  2. Buy big bags of low fat pretzels, tortilla chips, popcorn. It’s cheaper but yes, it’s more tempting. Invest in a few boxes of snack size baggies. When you’re NOT hungry, portion out servings according to the package and then grab 1 baggie when you’re ready to snack. You’ll eat less and save more.

Eat breakfast at home. It is almost always less expensive and healthier than eating out. For example, you can scoop out a bagel and fill with low fat cheese, cottage cheese, peanut butter, cream cheese, etc. You’re cutting calories by scooping and eating far less topping than when you’re eating breakfast out.
