Trying to eat healthy on a fixed income? Planning your meals in advance and taking a list when you go shopping can help you buy only what you need. Your shopping list will insure you have everything you need to try out a new recipe. Don’t go grocery shopping while you’re hungry. If you shop on an empty stomach, you might buy foods or snacks you don’t really need, because your stomach’s rumbling. Remember while you’re shopping to ask yourself how you will use the items you’re buying and whether or not you’re getting a good value for your money.
