Is There a Nutritional Upside to a Down Economy?

tocking your pantry with items you don't need," says Bushman.

"Also, keep an eye on your circular when buying anything from higher ticket items, like meat or produce, to pantry staples. It'll help you save money and time in the grocery store," adds Bushman.

Here are more tips and ideas to be portion-wise with your serving size:

  • Groziak also recommends that to take on a new behavior it's easier to make "simple switches" with better-for-you options that don't sacrifice flavor or quality and still enable you to enjoy the foods you love.

And many-a-kid's favorite, Ragu(R) pasta sauces, like their Old World Style(R) Margherita, have a full serving of vegetables in every half-cup of sauce."
  • Another quick change is to opt for Wish-Bone(R) Light Italian Dressing as a calorie-saving option as it has 60 percent fewer calories and 75 percent less fat than the original, but is still full of flavor. Try this substitution when creating a classic favorite like a Tuna Nicoise Salad. "When building a meal that includes higher ticket items, like fruits and vegetables, look for what's in season -- it'll not only be less expensive, but it'll help to naturally add more flavor and require less ingredients to make it," explains Bushman. To eyeball your serving size, keep in mind that a one-cup serving of potatoes is about the size of your f
