EXCUSE BUSTER - IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE!
This week we BUST another Healthy Lifestyle myth with our 5 STAR LIFE ON A 1 STAR BUDGET CHALLENGE!
Healthy food too expensive? Think again!
Tap water vs soda - want to guess which is both cheaper and better for you? Switching ONE can of soda to water every day would lead to over $500 a year in your pocket or over $2190 for a family of four. This money could be used to buy food that has some nutritional value!
Buy fruits and veggies on sale when in season. When they're not in season, frozen is picked and frozen during the season which preserves its nutrients.
Bring your lunch instead of hitting the fast food restaurants - you'll save in the long run AND feel better!
Make your designer coffee at home - it's cheaper and you have more control over the ingredients.
My weekend challenge is a BINGO style card that helps me make better nutrition and fitness decisions that won't break the bank. A very good thing for someone who is trying to save money for a trip back home to Halifax in July.
