5 Ways Eating Healthy Saves You Money

If you’re like so many other women, you may think eating right = expensive. This can be an enormous hindrance to your ability to move forward and achieve your goals of better health, so I’m here to dispel that myth!

So I’m going to give you 5 ways it can actually save you monthly. 

  1. 1. You are eating less often – when you are satisfied with the right kinds of foods you go from burning sugar to burning fat and go longer between meals. So gone will be the days of eating every 2 hours just to stay full or keep energy up. Don’t know if you’re a sugar burner? If you experience the following, chances are high that you are:
  2.  
    • You snack regularly
    • You’re irritable when you haven’t eaten
    • You crave carbs and sugar
    • You deal with abdominal fat
    •  
  1. 2. You’ll eat out less often – this partly goes back to number 1, so when you are a more efficient at burning fat you won’t be in a constant state of feeling ravenous. You’ll more than likely find yourself being able to pass by the drive through with far more ease. Not to mention, when you’re eating the right foods that fuel your body, you’re seeing results and you don’t WANT to hinder your progress. Better sleep, better digestion, better mood, better focus, better energy. Yeah, no thanks Burger King!
  2.  
  • 3. You will be snacking far less often, which keeps you full for longer. Think of all the snacks in your pantry right now. Envision yourself putting every single box of cookies, crackers, chips, etc., in a box and throwing them away. Does that make you a little bit nervous? Are you thinking of all the money you’re throwing away? Exactly! It costs to buy all those snacks and you simply don’t need them when you’re eating the right foods. That leads to physical and financial snack freedom!
  •  

4. You end up planning your meals so you get the things at the grocery store you’ll actually use for specific meals instead of just randomly throwing things in. When you have a specific way of eating, you tend to buy the things you’ll need for those meals and maybe a few healthy snacks. That’s it.

5. Pay the farmer now or the pharmacy later. I don’t know who first said that but it’s so true, and it’s because those with a diet from highly processed foods including sodas, pastries, chips, etc, are at a higher prevalence for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cancer, irritable bowl syndrome, metabolic disease, the list goes on. Add up those medications, doctors visits, potential hospital visits and surgeries…Just. Pay. The farmer! 

You also Don’t have to buy all organic food. If your budget allows for all organic, that’s great, but it doesn’t have to be all organic when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Look at the Clean Fifteen and the Dirty Dozen HERE for a guideline.

I’ll be the first to admit that eating rice and beans for every meal, is indeed cheaper. BUT, when you factor in, not only the above points, but also the fact that a healthier you is, by default, a more medically less expensive you, there is no debating it’s value all the way around!
