Guest Report - More Ways to Eat Healthy and Save Money

 

 

Eating better should impact your health, not your wallet. But unfortunately many people shop for cheap, easy and convenient instead of nutritious, affordable and delicious. When creating your next menu and grocery list, think "outside the box" to create healthy meals that taste better and save you money. Here are a few tips to remember:

  • Not all carbs are created equal. Choose healthy carbs like whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables that are digested slowly, provide lots of fiber and keep blood sugar and insulin levels stable. Unhealthy carbs like foods with white flour, refined sugar, and white rice have been stripped of essential nutrients, fiber and bran, causing blood sugar spikes and short term energy.
  • Buy in bulk when you can. Purchase bulk grains like brown rice, oats and quinoa and store in airtight containers. Purchase lean meats in larger packages, split into meal-size portions and store in the freezer for later use. Dried beans can also be purchased in bulk and stored easily in your pantry.
  • Shop for seasonal produce. When produce is in season, it is the least expensive and has the best flavor and nutritional value. Enjoy them fresh or store by canning or freezing for later use. Remember a diet high in fruits and vegetables helps to prevent chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity-all of which could cost you your life!

Don't use the excuse that eating healthy is too expensive. Your best investment is your health! Shop smart and eat fresh, unprocessed, local foods to help you "Feel Better and Live Longer!"
