Hi everyone, hope your spring (or autumn) is going well. Today we have a special guest post for you from our friends at Personalincome.org. While these guys are experts in their area of financial management, a few of them also happen to be experts at healthy eating, since they need that to optimise their already sharp brainpower! Here goes:
Isn’t it easier if you create a list of what you want to eat for the week and what ingredients are necessary to prepare them? This is a useful strategy if you want to stay healthy and save a lot of money.
The good thing about planning in advance is that you can estimate the overall cost of the dishes you want to prepare. You can also remove dishes that you think are unhealthy. You can just stick with healthier food choices.
Don’t worry if you are not great in cooking. There are a lot of recipe books available. Some of them can even be easily searched online. There are also a lot of tutorial videos for you to learn from. You might have some of them via Facebook where dishes are cooked for just a few seconds. You can see the ingredients necessary and the steps involved in cooking the dishes.
You will adjust at first since you have not done this before. You are used to eating outside all the time. Eventually, the process becomes a habit. You won’t have a hard time planning your meals and estimating the budget.
Just think of you and your family’s health as the main motivation. It would be enough to change the way you think about food. For more tips, just check the infographic below. It provides ideas on what to do if you really can’t eat healthy and you always go beyond the budget.
