Eating Well and Spending Less


Eating healthy foods is important for your diabetes control and your health. But you might feel it costs too much to eat the right foods these days. The good news is you can eat smart without breaking your budget.


Do your homework first. Decide how much money you have to spend and 
how you’ll plan your 
meals for the week. 
Here are some tips to 
get you started:

  • Map out your meals for the week. 
What meals will you cook at home, and how many meals, if any, will you eat away from home? Think about quick and easy ways to save money, too. For example, if you tend to grab a muffin or bagel on 
the way to work, enjoy a 
bowl of high-fiber cereal 
at home, or bring a whole-
wheat English muffin with 
some peanut butter or a 
boiled egg to work with you. 
You’ll save money.
  • Make your list 
and check it twice. Once you’ve planned your menu for the week, make 
your shopping list. This list 
will save you time and help keep you from buying items that you may not really need.
