Healthy Eating on a Budget



For most of us, the food bill is the largest bill we've got before we introduce healthy into the equation. Most of us spend over half of the money we earn monthly on food alone so there is no surprise it is such a sensitive subject. It does not have to be, though, there is a way to keep the food bill low and still eat healthy and well. Just be practical about it.
You can eat healthy, eat well and eat on a budget at the same time if you shop smart and cook everything yourself. Healthy eating is not a rocket science - you already know what's good and what's bad for you, it's just that junk and takeouts are often more convenient when it comes to a quick budget meal. If you make healthy eating convenient and affordable at the same time, you'll have no problem switching to better food.

Understanding ,Healthy


The idea of ​​what is healthy is distorted these days. Most of the stuff available is modified and has been altered in some way. I doubt that you can get hold of something really clean unless you grow it or raise it yourself. You see all the pretty pictures online of the healthy meals and you can instantly count twenty ingredients involved in making the dish. Some of them you'll fail to identify or pronounce so you are instantly discouraged because there is no way you can find all of the ingredients, afford to buy them and then spend two hours making the meal. Why? Ordinary every day home cooked meals are still the best thing there is especially if you use very little oil and serve smaller portions.

Healthy does not mean rare or complicated, that's where "expensive" comes from. Healthy is what your body, not just your taste buds, will appreciate and then use to build a healthier and stronger you. It simply means: nutritious food.

There is not much your body can get from processed meat and bread, sweets, pizza and beer. You can survive eating junk but you will become malnutritioned and as a result your health will eventually decline and your quality of life along with it. You have a choice.


A little bit healthier


Most of us just want to eat a little bit healthier, we do not want to go all the way organic or vegan - some of us do not have the luxury to buy superfoods ... or any vegetables for that matter. We want something quick, tasty, cheap but also healthy. Notice, the "healthy" bit is always mentioned last but it does not have to be this way.

The expensive begins with variety, the more complex your shopping list is, the more likely you are to have a longer receipt at checkout. Having the same menu and / or buying the same stuff can fix that.

If you have several default meals during the week, you can always make something more imaginative on the weekend if you get bored. The trick is to make healthy living, even when it's based on the same kind of food, the norm. If you eat healthy and well six days out of seven you are doing great. And you'll notice the difference not just in the way you look but also in the way you feel.
