Shopping for healthy foods can be a daunting task when so many convenience meals are at our fingertips. Excuses to not shop for fresh foods usually include, “The food goes bad too quickly,” “I don’t have enough time to cook,” or, “It’s too expensive.” Now that 2017 is in full swing, it’s time to let go of the excuses and start nourishing our precious bodies and minds with healthy foods. The first step to becoming healthier without breaking the bank is to learn how to make the right choices when purchasing fresh foods.
All of these strategies will help put fresh food in your fridge while making it affordable. Now, on to tackling the preparation of healthy meals despite that all-too familiar time crunch. Many people are busy with school, work, children, etc., and believe they don’t have time to cook. While that can be true at times, it is possible for busy people to fit in healthy meals if they use the following strategies:
Some of my favorite meal-prepping activities include making hard-boiled eggs and overnight oats for breakfast, stuffing freezer baggies with frozen fruits for quick smoothies, cutting up and portioning out raw veggies and fruits (which can be used for snacks or salads), and making crockpot soups, curry, and grab n’ go homemade snacks (such as energy bites, muffins, or trail mix). Using all of these strategies will effectively stretch your dollar and time, and create a healthier you in the process!
