Eating clean is not cheap

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I really do not know if we can afford to eat clean. We spent our whole monthly food budget in one week. There has to be a cheaper was to buy good food.

I need help. Very upset about it.

    I think I did buy organic. After we got home and noticed everything said organic. We have made a menu for the next couple of weeks taking left over to work and just eating portion control.

    I you mean organic, it probably is more expensive unless you can find a local co-op or market. My answer to cheap, healthy eating is lots of dried beans cooked from scratch. We have some form of beans almost every day. I can do this easily because I'm home all day, but my friend puts them in the crock pot. Haven't tried that, but if you work you might try it.

    Remember, the money you spend on your health is the best investment you can make. Kudos to you for the positive steps you've taken.

    Not totally sure what you mean by clean....organic??

    For me, it has been way cheaper.

    Now veggies is the mainstay along with fruit.

    I have cut red meat to maybe twice a week at most....usually less. Eat little pasta as that packs on the lbs, and dumped cheese, which is expensive.

    I will eat sliced turkey or chicken and use Arnolds flat bread.

    Like anything, you have to find a balance.
