Affordable Eating for Weight Loss: It’s Possible!
Many people believe that eating healthy to achieve weight loss comes with a hefty price tag, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Despite concerns that economic downturns may lead to poorer eating habits—evidenced by the fall in sales for health-focused stores like Whole Foods and a rise in fast-food profits—you can eat well without breaking the bank!
Nutritious Foods Don’t Have to Cost a Fortune
You don’t have to splurge on premium ingredients to eat healthily. Affordable staples like eggs, rice, canned fish, fruits, and vegetables can provide the nutrients your body needs.
Investing in low-cost, quality food now can save you from medical expenses in the long run, making “cheap” unhealthy foods more costly over time.
Budget-Friendly Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is often touted as the most important meal of the day. Yet, many common breakfast items are essentially sugary desserts. For instance, a donut can pack up to 360 calories and 6 grams of trans fats—not an ideal start to the day.
Fortunately, there are many affordable and nutritious breakfast options available. Go for oatmeal or eggs to get your day off to a good start. To maximize savings, buy off-brand items on the lower grocery shelves and consider purchasing breakfast staples like oatmeal and eggs in bulk.
Money-Saving Meal Prepping Tips
One way to save money and ensure you’re eating well is by meal prepping. Plan to serve the same breakfast items for a week or two to minimize grocery shopping. Then, switch it up over the weekend with a special breakfast featuring all the favorites you missed during the week. As you do this, one important factor is the ability to keep up with your routine. We are building a new lifestyle, not a new temporary fad.
Consider making your own breakfast bread or muffins using fresh ingredients. You can even substitute applesauce for some of the oil for a healthier twist. Make a batch ahead of time and store them in the fridge or freezer to extend their shelf life.
The Bottom Line
With a little planning and smart shopping, you can eat healthily, lose weight, and save money. After all, taking a mindful approach to your diet is not only beneficial for your waistline but also your wallet.
