How you can eat healthy on a budget, from EatingWell on a Budget.

Today, with high food prices and a struggling economy, the lessons that Argueta learned are ones that anyone can use and appreciate. For example, she learned that fish is often cheaper at Asian markets. Another tip, from TTKD’s founder, Liesel Flashenberg: “We buy lots of chicken parts on sale and portion them for freezing in different sizes for use in varying recipes.” The simple tips for saving, as well as the real changes TTKD has made in people’s lives, helped inspire EatingWell’s new book, EatingWell on a Budget.

EatingWell on a Budget shares TTKD’s goal of teaching people how to cook and eat well for less, no matter whether you are a family trying to make ends meet or are trying to save for kids’ college educations. The book pulls together 140 of EatingWell’s best simple recipes that cost less than $3 per serving. It offers 40 easy ways to save and tons of quick tips, from how to use up leftover tortillas (try making your own chips at home) to why beans are one of the greatest nutrition values.
