In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Ashleigh Evans of Dash of Evans all about how to grocery shop on a budget. Ashleigh loves to show fellow parents how to feed their family AND save money, all while eating healthy.

Today, we chat about ways to save money at the grocery store, set and stick to your family budget, and how to prevent food waste and make the most of your groceries.

As a busy mom of 4, Ashleigh Evans has no problem taking a little help from the store. On her blog Dash of Evans, she loves to create delicious recipes with easy to find ingredients. Follow along on her Instagram stories for lunchbox ideas, simple dinner recipes and more!
