It is true that if you want to go totally organic that it may be a bit more expensive, but there are many healthy options and ideas out there that will provide a senior with health benefits without breaking their budget. One website, http://www.care2.com/greenliving/healthy-food-for-less-money.html presented ways to Eat Great, Healthy Food for Less Money. It is doable, you just have to know how, so let’s take a look:
Each season brings with it crops that are available for that time period. Sure, I would love to have a nature ripened strawberry throughout the year, but since this is not possible, I will pay more for that fruit if I want it. What I do is browse my grocery store ads and look for seasonable fruits and veggies that I can use in my favorite food recipes.
Of course seniors do not want to purchase bulk items because you just never know how much you are going to use at one time and you do not want the item sitting on your shelves for long periods of time. This goes for spices, too, that do wear out over time. The best thing about caregiving is that I can share; a pinch of this or a pinch of that won’t even be missed in my cabinets, but will be appreciated to bring out the flavors in foods for my seniors!
Tomorrow we will look at more possibilities. For now, keep in mind that With Age Comes Respect. As long as you realize this, things will look up for everyone!
