The elephant in the room is that it costs more to buy better quality food. I prefer to look at things holistically rather than in individual silos. Consider the organic produce, or sustainable meat or eggs being used as ‘medicine’ for the body and it puts things in perspective. Fewer doctors visits, fewer exploratory scans etc. As a family, we save thousands every year by staying ‘well’ instead of becoming sick and needing drugs to get well again. Food for thought!
That said, there are ways to be smarter – here are some tips to start incorporating a healthier lifestyle.
1. Buy in bulk – hit up your local @thesourcebulkfoods , @terramadreorganics , @wholefoods or similar for all your essentials!
2. Let Farmers & Local markets become your best friends – not only is the produce super fresh but it’s cheaper!
3. #zerowaste– if there are veggies that are about to turn, make a batch of spaghetti sauce, a delicious stirfry or wholesome curry! Of my fave is a frittata. Be creative. @zerowastehome has some great tips on this topic, she’s a guru!
