How to Eat Right When Money is Tight

I am been doing some browsing and amazing learning on the national Snap-Ed site this week.  There is so much good information here, it could take a month to read it all. But I want to share with you a few things that caught my eye.

Eat Right When Money's Tight.  There is a whole section devoted to helping us eat right on small and reduced budgets. With great shopping trips, menu planning strategies, and recipes it has everything that we are used to seeing from our own Food $ense lessons.   There are applications and helps to apply for SNAP benefits, MyPlate tips for eating healthy on a budget, and an Eat Right When Money's Tight tip sheet.

There is so much information on the SNAP-Ed website it could take weeks to go through it all. That is why I think Food $ense is such an amazing place to start.

It shares with us all the most basic steps that we need to start eating healthy on a budget.
