Is Eating Healthy Expensive?

Thursday, May 03, 2012

A lot of people including myself has given the excuse eating healthy is too expensive!! Well I've changed my way of thinking!! Junk food is very expensive!! I very seldom except for a rare treat do I buy it anymore! Thats saving money! Vegetable is a lot cheaper. I have been saving a lot not eating out that can be very expensive!! I might eat out 1 time a month except on special occasions! So that saves a lot!! I mostly eat chicken n fish also been incorporating veggie days into my diet so that is saving a lot!! Eating healthy is easier to cook and takes less time!! I bake Or broil everything so easy to pop in oven meat and vegetables in same pan!! If its chicken I cook chicken for a little while before adding veggies! I feel so much better eating healthy and when I have had bad eating days I can tell a big difference!!! A year ago I never would have thought I'd ever get to this point where I actually enjoy eating healthy!!

Favorite veggie day meal is spinach tomato and mushroom omelet. I use egg whites and add jalepenos and small amt of cheese very delicious and low in calories and cheap to make!! I can eat this at lunch cause I usually do protein shakes for breakfast and fruit. I know now that I am capable of reaching my goals!! I can do this and will do this for the new and healthy me!! I am doing this!!!!

    It is way cheaper, I agree. Okay, I have to admit...I was going to buy oreos for the kids and their friends one day...but when I went to pick up the package, I looked at the was over $5.00...really?!?! for junk food unhealthy cookies? They got graham crackers instead LOL!

So, yes, eating healthier is cheaper..not only is better for your body in the long run :o) Way to go!

    As someone said, there's no such thing as cheap food. We pay for it one way or another.

    Thanks for sharing...if you really think about it eating healthy does save money in the long run...less trips to doctors! Junk food is expensive the only "good" thing about it is that it lasts longer. Notice how the "good" is in quotations?! ;)
There really is not anything good about junk food. When I eat fresh I feel so much better.
