Hi, I'm new to this team but not to Sparkpeople. I'm interested in learning how to eat clean. I'm interested in your challenge. I've been listening to Underground Wellness on Youtube this morning, got the link from this group. I found it interesting, I guess I've been doing some things wrong. Do you have a forum for just talking about whatever's on your mind? I need some help to change my diet.

Welcome to the team. I find that the junk that fills you up is really more expensive than real food. It does cost you but think what you are doing for your body and your life. My family is not completely on board yet but they are getting better.

Hi, and WELCOME! Your concerns are the same as many of our concerns... I believe there is a thread about the cost of CLEAN eating and how to keep costs down...

Getting our families to want to eat healthy can offer a challenge. Take a look through the team cookbook... you can fine the link at the top left of the main team page... click on LINKS...

Anyhow, welcome to the team!

I am new to the Tosca Reno approach, so others will have to jump in if I'm off course, but I have attempted to eat cleaner since being on the South Beach Diet Team here on SP for over a year and a half; we advocate "real food" versus packaged foods. Real food can be expensive. That's a fact. However, if you cut out the junk, you may find that your grocery bill can be about the same.

Some tips for savings:

- know your grocery prices
- stock up on sales
- look to the bulk section
- WARNING: bulk prices are not always less
- whole grains, beans and lentils are cheap; learn to use them
- eat at home, eat out less
- cook in batches and fill the freezer
- eat only in-season fresh produce
- stock up on frozen veggies and berries in the summertime when the prices are lowest
- frozen and dried foods are often less expensive than canned

Typically real food doesn't come with a coupon, it comes with love from your kitchen.

My main concern is to get my family eating healthy.

I have been online researching clean eating all weekend. I went Saturday to buy the book and the two places I stopped were out, so I have requested the book from the library, but I am 5th in line. I am eager to get started, but need a plan to help transition my family.

I am also concerned about the cost. I am use to cutting my bill significantly with coupons.
