Saving Money While Eating Healthy

The best thing to do is buy in season...

This is what $40 got me at Food Lion. It enough food for my and my hubby for 1 week.

I eat leftovers and the fresh food for my breakfast and lunch.

Re the chicken... We eat what we want and the rest is used to make chicken stock or chicken soup depending on how much is left. I will buy a whole chicken and cut it in pieces myself.. so 3 chickens yield 3 meals of 1 breast each, 2 meals of 2 thighs each (4 for hubby), and one meal of baked "wings"...

Eat real food.

Vegetable oils? Fake eggs? Atkins bars? Please! The best foods for you are generally whole. Eat real eggs and use full-fat cream, eat lots of vegetables sauteed in a bit of olive oil or coconut oil. These foods satisfy, these foods have more nutrients, and these aren't frankenfoods with strange ingredients. Go whole 80% of the time, and you'll do yourself a favor.

Add LOTS of Veggies To Your Diet

Having trouble staying under your allotted calories for the day, or feeling hungry when you do? Try adding a pound or two of non-starchy vegetables to your diet.

There are less than 200 calories in 2 pounds of veggies, but you will feel full and get lots of vitamins and nutrients at the same time!

Make Getting Your Vitamins & Minerals a Game!

We can track any nutrients you want. Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin A, etc. The food tracker allows us to add any of this. Now, rather than going for the multi-vitamin first, I'm trying to see if I can eat foods that'll get me my Recommended Daily Allowance of nutrients I want to track. As a result, I'm eating more whole foods and I'm too full to have much space for "junk" food or foods without nutrients.

Buy whole foods (not packaged ones)

You'll save more by switching thing from premade/packaged foods to staple whole foods:
1. uncles bens minute rice - bulk food white/brown rice
2. fruit cups - buy produce, chop up into tupperware, n store
3. spaghetti sauce - make your own, its easy and cheaper!
4. ketchup/mayo - make your own, its easy and cheap!
3. lemonades/teas - make your own, its easy and cheap!

People don't think to make their own stuff, but most of it is much cheaper to make yourself, and it tastes good

Fill up with Whole Foods

Fill up with whole fruits or veggies with high fiber or fat content. Natural fats, like that found in avocados, is much better for you than potato chips or other carbs. Sometimes I like to eat a whole mango as part of my breakfast. The water in the fruit helps me to feel full and not overeat.
