Choose your battles
Decide what is important to you for each person its different. For example you might want to buy everything fresh and organic but not all of us are able to pay for organic so look at which produce have the most pesticides and buy that organic and wash the rest really well.
Shop in Season
This is not only better for your body which was designed to eat what is growing in this season but also it tends to be less expensive. Farmer's Markets are a great place to find what's season and depending on the market you can get some great deals.
Do it yourself. If you don't know how to cook not is the time to start get simple, clean and healthy recipes and make them. I like to do food prep by making one large meal and divide it up into the right portion size then its ready to go. You will eat lot a of the same thing but it saves time and money!
I hope you got some ideas on how to save on healthy foods! But I must say that when I do invest more money in healthy foods I don't look at it as wasted it about investing in your body, health and well being. My mom always called are form of health insurance!
