Affordable Healthy Eating

One of the reasons I don’t eat healthy food is because it’s cheaper to go with the “dollar menu” or whatever sodium-rich frozen food product is only a buck at the grocery store. It turns out that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to eat healthy foods. Here are five tips to do just that, from Fox News Magazine (click the link to read the full article):

  • Organic fruits and vegetables are healthier than non-organics, but also costlier. Buy non-organic foods but remove the skin to avoid waxes and pesticides.
  • Drink hot water with lemon first thing in the morning. The hot water cleanses the colon, while the vitamin C in the lemon juice helps boost liver function.
  • Eat more raw foods to preserve the enzymes they contain, which do great things for the body like aiding in weight loss and improving digestion.
  • Use apple cider vinegar. I was surprised to read this in the article. My parents swear by apple cider vinegar, and they’re correct to do so, as it aids in the growth of healthy bacteria in our bodies that are killed by the antibiotics found in animal products. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before meals goes a long way, as well as using it as a salad dressing.
  • Drink water, specifically, the amount of water your body needs. Water flushes toxins out of the body, oxygenates cells, and hydrates the skin. How much water should you drink? Divide your weight — in pounds — by 2, and then drink that many ounces of water. It’s also a good idea to drink water 30 minutes before or after meals
