Eating healthy on a budget is difficult. Old habits can be hard to break, but finding creative ways to make eating healthy, convenient and affordable can make you feel good without breaking your budget – and, it’s easier than you think. In this on-demand program, Jeanette Andrade, director of the University of Florida Master of Science Dietetic Internship program, shares ways to eat healthy while on a budget — where to shop and how to access foods and beverages if factors impede you from shopping — but most importantly, easy and yummy recipes with fewer than five ingredients (yes, you read that right!).

By watching this program, you can expect to learn:

  • how to purchase healthy budget-friendly foods;
  • myths about eating healthy and cost;
  • and ideas for preparing a budget-friendly dish.

This program is presented by Dr. Jeanette Andrade and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
