Healthy Eating on a Budget!



Do you know what's the most essential components for your health and well-being? It's a well-balanced and nutritious diet. But let's keep it real, maintaining healthy eating habits on a budget can seem like an impossible mission. Don't worry, though. I got you covered. This blog post is here to offer some tips and tricks to help you eat healthy without having to burglarize Wells Fargo.


First things first, let's talk about meal planning. Trust me, creating a meal plan can establish order plus save you both time and money. You won't have to default to the usual user settings of last-minute takeout or worry about running out of ingredients. Stick to your grocery list, and you'll eliminate overspending on impulse purchases. Look for those delectable sales and coupons, yes, shop smart and don't shy away from buying store-brand items, the ingredients are usually identical to the popular. Though it’s understandable that some things can’t be compromised.


Buying in bulk at from BJ’s or Costco is also a fantastic way to save money long term. This is a marathon, not a sprint, we live in the now ladies and gentlemen but prepare for Tomorrowland. So, when you see those fantastic sales on items you frequently use, make sure to grab that in large quantities. Plus, shop seasonally as often as possible. Not only is it cheaper, but it's more nutritious and tastes better. And higher nutrition is a must in this genetically modified marketplace. Frankenfood populating every shelf including those claiming organic, but as taught in agriculture 101, there’s no natural without seeds. Pure capitalist big business for seeding one-year crops that can’t reproduce.


While we’re at it cooking in bulk couldn’t hurt either. Make large portions of your favorite dishes and freeze them for later use. Having healthy and nutritious meals ready to eat without prep at any time is incredible. And don't even think about throwing away leftovers, either. Some food tastes better on the second day or you can use them to make new meals. It's a no-brainer!


Now, let's talk about vegetarian meals. Though vegan myself, for others meat can be costly and going vegetarian doesn't have to be boring. Try some delicious lentil soup, vegetable stir-fry, curry tofu or chickpea dishes including my favorite falafels. They're all delicious and won't viciously pit-bull attack your wallet. Eating out is not only expensive but much less healthy than cooking at home. You’re oblivious and have no idea what strangers are doing to your food. Also be aware that thirst sometimes disguises itself as hunger so drink lots of lemon water, which is not only healthier but cheaper than sugary drinks. For the disciplined warriors who can handle it, eating one meal a day can increase energy levels and improve insulin sensitivity. You don’t have to do it all the time but rotating it into your schedule occasionally can be a good thing.


So, let’s go over a budget-friendly healthy menu of meals that are known to save the day. For breakfast, oatmeal with fruit and nuts, smoothies, and egg-based dishes are affordable and nutritious options. For lunch, sandwiches, salads, and soups are easy to prepare plus won't break the bank. Dinner can be just as delicious with roasted vegetables, stir-fries, and casseroles. And for snacking, fresh fruit, avocado, veggies and hummus, plus homemade trail mix are budget-friendly treasures.


To stay on track, avoid wasting food and keep kitchen essentials like rice, beans, and lots of spices. This way, you can always create healthy and flavorful meals without overspending. I personally partake in natural super nutrients like sea moss daily to supplement the lack of nutrition available through our weaponized food. I’m not suggesting, I’m just saying!
