“Eating Healthy Is Expensive”
It’s actually not. Yes, meat 🥩 can get expensive, but there are so many other protein sources out there.
I chose to buy in bulk when I can. For one, it saves me shopping 🛒 trips, and for two, it’s cheaper. What you see pictured cost me $25 and lasted me a solid week.
I eat a 1/2 cup of veggies 🌶 at almost every meal. Veggies are great for micronutrients, fiber, and for helping you keep full. They also have protein in them. I easily sneak in about 15g or protein a day in veggies alone.
A cheaper, short term option for saving money 💴 while meal prepping is by shopping at Aldi’s, Food for Less., or other discount grocery store. I am a regular at both these places. Both carry organic foods and are budget friendly. So what they are not name brands? Who cares.
Another way to cut costs would be to buy frozen or canned. Would it be better for you to eat fresh? Yes! But, it’s way better to eat frozen and canned then not eat at all, or to eat processed crap & cheap drive through.
I’ve really come to love cooking 🍳 my own food. I rarely go out to eat. I find security in knowing how my food is cooked, and I have a sense of pride after I’ve bulk cooked my meals for the next 3 days. Love feeling like a lil chef 👩🏼🍳 !
