COOKING on a BUDGET

How to eat healthier: PART 1

GET KITCHEN CLEVER WITH PHIL

Welcome to my new series in which I help you get your healthy eating on track. A good diet starts with having the right ingredients to hand, and over the coming months I’ll help you shop and cook for specific needs. Let’s kick off with budget cooking – a topic that’s top of most of our wish lists!

THE LATEST ‘BUZZ INGREDIENTS’ and food trends always seem to focus on a few highly priced ingredients that promise to change your life. If only it were that simple. The truth is, you can eat healthily without trawling through the latest food-hipster’s blog for inspiration, or buying the latest expensive ‘superfood’ – and you’ll save a load of cash, too.

GET BACK TO BASICS

When you’re time poor, ready meals may look like an attractive option – but they’re usually a false economy, regardless of how many you’re feeding. ‘Cooking from scratch can be almost as quick, certainly cheaper and a whole lot tastier than any ready meal,’ says HFG nutrition consultant Juliette Kellow. ‘And you don’t have to buy top-of-the-range products. You can still get the same amount of nutrients and goodness from budget buys.’

HOW TO FIND GOOD VALUE

Look at Asda’s new Wonky Veg box, available in 550 stores nationwide at the time we went to press. It’s full of less than perfectly shaped produce that wouldn’t usually make the shelf. Not only do these boxes help stores cut food waste, but at ow-cost£3.50 and with enough seasonal veg to feed a family of four for a week, they’re fantastic value, too. To see inside a box, search ‘wonky veg’ at healthyfood.co.uk.
