Eating clean isn’t complicated—nor does it have to be pricey. Clean eating is about embracing a few basic healthy-eating principles. We follow these healthy-eating principles when we create recipes in the EatingWell Test Kitchen.

In the process, I’ve discovered that eating clean can actually save you money with just a little extra planning.

Just follow these 5 easy budget tricks and you’ll be eating clean and spending less. You can’t beat that!
