Two weeks ago, I changed my eating habits. That means . . . my family’s eating habits also changed along with me. They don’t mind though. 🙂 There are a number of reasons why I changed my eating habits so abruptly, but Ill get into that on another post.
Today, I’d like to share with you some tips for finding healthy food on a budget. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. In the past two weeks, I challenged myself with the help of prayer and research to find ways to make our new health journey work with a limited income. Here are some of the tips I share in this video that you can use right now to start eating healthy on a budget too.
1. Check grocery store clearance racks or baskets. Grocery stores mark down many health foods that are gluten-free, organic and non-gmo for a quick sale. Usually they are not even close to expiring and you’ll find good products for cheap!
2. Shop stores you wouldn’t normally look for health food. Big Lots is a great example to find marked down healthy food. Organic and non gmo chips, organic dried goods and even organic salsa are numerous at this store.
3. Check the weekly ads for healthy food markets like Sprouts, Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Plan your meals according to what is on sale and what is in season.
4. Buy grass fed meats and dairy through wholesale organic websites like Zaycon. I just bought 40 pounds of natural organic chicken for 1.69 a pound through Zaycon. I’ll be picking up my order this Friday so I’ll tell you how that goes.
5. Don’t discredit your local grocery stores for inexpensive healthy food. I found organic/non-gmo milk, ground turkey and brown organic veg fed eggs at Kroger (Fry’s). The prices were better than the farmer’s market.
The last tip and best tip of all. . .
Pray and ask the Lord to show you where to go. Before I begin to make my list for the week, I pray. Let’s face it. God knows it already. He knows what I need before I ask Him. Why not make it easier on yourself. He’ll guide you, just ask.
My healthy food haul was the first of many to come. I hope this encourages you and helps you to take the healthy eating challenge for your family. I will be making videos and blogging more about the meal plans and recipes I make for my family with all this healthy food in the near future.
