One of the main concerns people have when making the switch from unhealthy to healthy food is the cost – processed food is often so much cheaper unfortunately. It’s incredibly irritating that eating healthy costs more than stuffing yourself with ready meals, but these foods are all healthy and won’t break the bank:


eggsEggs are one of the staples of my diet – I admit I’m a little addicted. They’re packed with protein and quick and easy to prepare – however you like them. They fill you up and help to build lean muscle.

bananasBananas are great for boosting energy and filling you up between meals, and because they’re totally portable you can take them anywhere to snack on.

Bell peppers

canned-tinned-tunaCanned tuna is really affordable – much cheaper than fresh fish, and great for mixing into salads. It’s high in lean protein and contains barely any fat.

Greek yoghurt

greek-yoghurtSome Greek yoghurts are expensive, but there are a number of great brands which are affordable and taste delicious! I eat Greek yoghurt as my treats because it’s high in protein and is a great alternative to things like ice cream or whipped cream – team some with berries and you’ve got a refreshing summer treat.

Romaine lettuce

romaine-lettuceRomaine lettuce is great – it can be chopped and included in a salad, or placed as the ‘bed’ for your meal, or even used as a replacement for wheat wraps when making fajita style meals. Trust me – it’s delicious as a fajita wrap!

Porridge oats

porridge-oatsPorridge is great because it fills you up while actually being good for you, and you can often buy a large amount of oats for a low price. Remember to look for gluten-free oats if you have coeliac disease or gluten intolerance.


carrotsCarrots are obviously an affordable addition to your evening meal, but they’re also great chopped as a snack to take with you wherever you go. They’re rich in beta carotene – an antioxidant – so they help to protect your body from free radicals.


applesMulti-packs of apples are very affordable and are a great filling snack. You know the saying – “An apple a day…”! I love apples because they’re quick and easy for when I’m on the go.
