For those of you who have followed me for a while, you will know that I love a bargain. I don’t see the point in over spending when it’s unnecessary, BUT I also don’t understand compromising your health for the sake of a few dollars.
Because of this outlook that I have, I have somewhat perfected the art of shopping to a budget whilst still eating healthy, nourishing food. I will share this wisdom with you in the form of my top eight tips to shopping savvy without compromising on health.
So, there you have it – my top eight tips to eating healthy without breaking the bank. I can’t stress enough that eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. The simpler you keep your meals; the easier healthy eating is. And one thing I want to stress about healthy eating is this:
Don’t knock it before you try it.
I have people make comments to me all the time when they see me eating zoodles or kale or nuts and carrot sticks, about how much they would hate to eat these foods or that they think they would taste gross/bland/boring/whatever (usually followed by a comment like ‘I’d rather eat *insert standard non-healthy food here* than be skinny’). But when I ask if they’ve tried it (as in whatever healthy food I may be eating at the time), they say no! Don’t be scared to try something new. Worst case scenario is you don’t like whatever it is, and then you move on with your life, knowing that you don’t like whatever food it is. Coming from my stubbornness and experience, I know too well how easy it is to go against all things that are new and scary because that’s the easy option, but when you can improve your health and save money while doing it, I really don’t see the argument against it.
Okay, I think I’m just ranting now so I’ll stop, but hopefully I've made my point.
I hope you like my tips and that they help you keep the dollars in your piggy bank and make your insides (and outsides) love you like never before!
Endless love and appreciation,
