Eating healthy on a budget may seem tough, but according to “Cooking Matters” Omaha, it’s actually not.
Saturday they held free tours at several Walmart Neighborhood Market grocery stores in order to teach people that eating healthy doesn’t necessarily have to mean breaking the bank.
They went over different tips, like how to buy vegetables that are in season, so they’re less expensive. They also talked about unit pricing and the difference between dairy products.
Annette Toomer with Cooking Matters said, “People think it is really expensive to buy healthy things and that it doesn't taste good, so we are kind of here to prove them wrong. To show them it is inexpensive and healthy to buy things on a budget.
They hope to educate people so that they’ll go for the fruits and vegetables instead of the junk food. They also went over how to read labels so you know what you’re buying.
