Being budget-conscious doesn’t mean depriving yourself. Upscale brown-bag lunches with economic gourmet sandwich options. Keep it healthier and when possible, buy organic. Seasonal local produce assures freshness and supports your farming community, too. Choose no-nitrite, low sodium deli meats or grill hormone-, antibiotic-free chicken cutlets at home for salads and wraps. Select all-natural cheeses instead of highly processed brands. These ideas will no doubt inspire other creative combinations.
