For some reason, a healthy diet is often thought to be expensive. In reality, this doesn’t need to be the case!
Healthy eating doesn’t mean having to resort to super green powders, fancy seeds and nuts or magic smoothies.
So, what makes a meal healthy?
Let’s have a look at the NHS eat well plate
Healthy plates are complete and balanced from a macro- and micronutrient point of view.
This means they contain a good amount of carbohydrates (starchy foods and fruit/vegetables), protein (meat, fish, eggs, beans and milk/dairy products) and fat – these 3 are our macronutrients. But all these foods also contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, which are our micronutrients.
Eating well is really important for the whole family: we all need good fuel to be sharp, feel energetic and look after our health.
But we know that the cost of living crisis is a real concern for lots of families right now, and when fast food is so cheap compared to buying fresh produce and cooking, we can totally understand why healthy fast food isn’t always as appealing.
So, how can you spare a few pennies while ensuring good eating?
