Free food.... Yes FREE!

Foraging – Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch? Foraging for food is a fantastic way to keep fit and healthy, gets you out in the fresh air and gives you that ‘back to nature’ feeling.  Discover what is fresh on the trees, blossoming in the hedgrerows or growing in the ground.

Warning: You must know that what you are picking and eating is safe for consumption. Do you research before you set out. This is a great beginners guide to foraging  

Seasonal bargains

When certain foods are in season they can make for a great way to eat healthy for cheap. Do a little research and hit the Supermarket and local markets to do a spot of bargain hunting. This is a great website which lets you know when your favourite fruits and vegetables are in season: Eat The Seasons

Grow your own

Not just for those re-enacting an episode of the ‘Good Life’ (sorry aged reference) but growing your own fruit and vegetables is a great way to eat healthily and cheaply.

Growing your own food also gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment and is a great way to bring the family together. If you have children why not get them involved and teach them something useful at the same time. This is a great guide to growing your own fruit and veg by the BBC.
