Nutritionist tips for cooking on a budget
Nutritionist, Polly Hartley shares her top tips for cooking on a budget:-
- You don’t need to always buy fresh food, it can be expensive and only seasonal
- If you do buy fresh vegetables, chopping and putting in freezer bags helps to reduce waste
- You can freeze fresh fruit too, like grapes (which are delicious eaten frozen, a bit like sorbet) or peel and chop bananas and freeze to use in smoothies or again eat frozen as a snack (a bit like ice cream)
- Frozen and canned foods are fantastic and often retain more nutrients than fresh as they are frozen shortly after harvesting.
