Health Tip: Watching Portions and Your Wallet

Opt for budget-friendly bulk foods

(HealthDay News) -- You don't have to scrimp on nutritious foods to eat well on a budget.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases suggests:

  • Shop for meat in bulk. Once home, divide into single servings and freeze them.
  • Browse the local farmer's market for in-season produce. It's fresher and less expensive, but don't buy more than you can eat.
  • Don't eat more than the suggested serving size on a package of food. You'll stretch your meals and limit calories, fat, sodium and sugar.
