One of my main concerns when I started to eat right, was that I was going to have to dish out more cash to eat foods that probably didn’t even taste good. I thought my budget wouldn’t be able to provide for the eating I wanted.

One of the first things I learned was that everyone has a number of nutrient levels our body wants and needs to fufill everytime we eat.
Not eating right or “eating a well-balanced meal” (I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase before) causes our bodies to say “Hey! were missing x and y-factor, etc.. keep eating something.. anything… until we get it!”
That’s where sugar cravings come from.
Too much sugar and the body gets thrown off balance.
The chemicals in processed foods has the same effect on your body.
One of the first things I noticed when I learned to eat right, was I was able to eat more often (5-6 times a day) but I was eating A LOT less than before.
All my cravings we gone and I no longer spent money on food I didn’t need (such as ice cream, gronola bars, etc.), nor did I feel like going out to eat (when I did it was only to socialize and I normally ordered something very light).
This densely nutritious food was doing my body right, and it was shrinking my total budget for health.
Now after almost an entire year of living this way, I have not been sick once.
I was so happy to find myself not spending my budget on doctor visits, antibiotics, and cough medicine.
So the price of how to eat right on a budget is: changing some lifestyle habits, adjusting your budget toward healthy food choices, learning more about eating healthy for your body, and throwing out all the garbage in your cabinets.
The return on that investments is: looking better, feeling better, and moving better without breaking the bank or budget.
(Whether your eating right or eating wrong…imagine what you will look like, feel like, and move like in twenty years…that is great motivation!)
