More bang for your buck

July 31, 2013
By Katie Koerner , Marshall Independent

Despite what most people think, it is possible to eat healthy and save money. There are healthy economical foods located throughout all the grocery store aisles. Now that the kids are home from school and more people are traveling, planning out your meals and snacks ahead of time can help you make healthy choices while saving money. For example, making breakfast sandwiches ahead of time, rather than stopping for an Egg McMuffin, can save you $1.52. For lunch, pack a homemade Lunchables made up of mini Triscuits, low-fat cheese slices and Jennie-O turkey slices for $1.85 less than a turkey and cheddar Lunchables, plus you save extra calories, fat and sodium. For a healthy snack bar, choose a Kashi peanut butter bar for 39 cents per bar instead of a Snickers bar for 89 cents. The Kashi bar offers more fiber, protein and less sugar than the Snickers bar.
