10. Grow your own fruits and veg
Growing your own fruit and vegetables is a truly satisfying way of saving money and eating real, nutritious foods. It’s best to start off with easy to maintain produce such as peas, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, spring onions and tomatoes.
It might take some practice, but you don’t need a very large garden or an allotment to do so. Tomatoes and lettuces can be grown in grow bags on an urban balcony – we’ve even seen certain types of tomatoes being grown in hanging baskets!
If you need some help, the internet is awash with advice, and you don’t have to have naturally green fingers in order to enjoy the satisfaction of planting, growing, nurturing and picking your own food. Cooking from scratch at home is one thing – imagine doing so, using fresh produce grown by your own fair hands?!
Growing your own produce at home is satisfying, gets you outside in the fresh air nurturing your plants and may even get your culinary juices flowing in the kitchen. And it’s the ultimate in healthy eating on a budget!
