How to Create Clean Meals without Breaking the Bank
Clean eating can seem expensive.

Certainly, if you take the wrong approach, you can easily spend your paycheck in one trip to the market.

Those "designer" health foods you find in places like Whole Foods do tend to be more expensive. But, instead of spending your hard-earned dollars on kale chips, why not make your own? Getting back into the kitchen can save you a ton of money.

Michelle Dudash, Chef & Clean Eating Expert, says going with the seasons is key. Produce that is in season is way more economical because it's more abundant. The concept of supply and demand definitely applies. 

Another tip is to cook in bulk. Make a big batch of a meal and freeze. Michelle loves to do a large batch of beans in her slow-cooker and freeze for the weeks ahead. Not only is this super-simple, but beans are chock full of nutrients.

Listen in as Michelle joins host Lisa Davis to share more tips for clean eating without breaking the bank, as well as how you can be a part of her Clean Eating Cooking School.
