Eating Healthy Can Be Expensive .... My Way To Save
Members Were Sparked
A way to cut corners in your pocket as well as in the kitchen. Buying fresh produce and fruit is a winner. You can always divide them up and freeze the rest for later.
1. Buy in bulk; 4 ex: I buy 2 family size packs of chicken breast and make 3-4 meals out of them. 2. I clean, season and marinate my meat/fish for 8 hours and then freeze it. Don't 4get 2 label your bags w/seasonings (cuts cooking time by 1/2) 3. I blanch my veggies and then freeze them as well.

I've been stuck in the same weight range for so long, but I just kept trying the same workouts. I just started working with a personal trainer and already I feel a difference! Get someone who knows their stuff to help you make a change!
It's a little expensive, but I am willing to invest now to start a strong foundation for a healthy life!
Don't buy canned, boxed, or plastic bagged "FAST" foods. Buy fresh, wholesome items and then go home and create what is in those processed packages! Like potato chips or pizza, or granola bars. There are so many healthy ways to make these in the kitchen that taste so much better and have much less salt, sugar and fats in them. Get Creative!!! You can have your CAKE and eat it too!!!
