Eating healthy can be difficult, especially when we’re bombarded day in and day out by people on social media or on the news telling us one day that one thing is healthy, and the next day it’s not. It can be overwhelming to the say the least. While coconut oil and kale might agree with some people, avocado oil and spinach is good for others. You may enjoy almond milk, whereas I love organic dairy. We’re all built differently, and we should celebrate that! But one thing is for sure, it can be expensive to adopt a healthy lifestyle and eat healthy.
This past weekend I went to my local grocery store and bought raw cacao and organic raw honey and my bill came to over $20 for those two items. Granted, they’ll last me a few weeks, but it wasn’t fun to spend that amount on just two items! Grocery shopping can be terribly expensive whether you’re feeding a family of four, your elderly grandmother who is on a special diet, or just trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Our friends at “The Biggest Loser” were kind enough to share tips on how we can eat healthy on a small budget!
Here are a few of their tips:
- Buy in bulk. I couldn’t agree more. I love shopping at Amazon.com for my health food. They offer a great low price on everyday healthy essentials!
- Understand true portions: Be conscious of what you put on your plate and the food will last longer.
- Trimming the fat off of your budget. Look at where you’re spending your money. Food is important, to be healthy, you have to eat healthy.
- Look for affordable organic food. The demand is high, so the prices are lowering.
