Low Budget Groceries

You are what you eat” is a saying as old as it is true. Your body absorbs all the vitamins, nutrients, proteins and, most of all, carbs of everything you eat. Therefore, a good balance is the ideal goal. A few easy tips to help keep your grocery list healthy without emptying your pockets would include:

  • Shopping seasonally is probably the easiest thing to do to save the most money. Limit yourself to the fruits and vegetables that are in-season since stores tend to raise prices for those that are out-of-season. Try to plan out your weekly meals around what is in-season.
  • Comparing labels can be a tremendous help since a lot of less expensive brands contain the exact same ingredients as the more expensive ones.
  • Always stick to your shopping list. If you check for deals and make a list before going, you are sure to stick to your budget. If you start adding more and more to your cart due to sales and impulse buys, you will end up going over your budget or not getting the healthier foods that you set out to get.

Eating healthy isn’t always fun. With a personalized cutting board, engraved with your favorite motivational quote, it is sure to keep you motivated while preparing meals. Good foods to consider would include:

1. Eggs

Rich in protein and iron. Perfect for boiling and adding to any garden salad.

2. Oats

Perfect for weight loss, lowering blood sugar and reduces the risk of heart disease. Great for breakfast every day of the week, just use different fruits and flavors.

3. Canned Tuna

Inexpensive and a great food to keep your brain healthy. Add Greek Yogurt or Hummus and put between two slices of whole-wheat bread.

4. Popcorn

Substituting pre-made bags of popcorn for just the kernels will save you immensely and makes it into a healthy snack. Add flavors to mix it up.

5. Tea

Tea can be extremely inexpensive and is a great for boosting endurance and increases your body’s ability to burn fat for fuel.

Great At-Home Workout

Who said workouts are just for the gym? A lot of people don’t have the time or money to waste on going to the gym, but working out at home on your spare time doesn’t take from your valuable schedule and is absolutely free. An easy to do workout could include:

  • Plank or Side Plank
  • Wall Sit
