Good Morning D2F Family and Friends!
Today I have food on the brain. It seems to be a struggle with what I should be eating on a DAILY basis. Of course, I enjoy eating fast food on occasion but hamburgers and french fries get old really quick and I find myself bored with my limited menu. It also doesn’t help that food prices are at an all time high( its almost cheaper to eat a $1 hamburger than to buy fresh meat and produce at the store)… so sad but it’s our reality.
Going to the grocery store can be depressing for someone on a small budget but I’ve found a tool through eatright.org on the 3 P’s: Eating Healthy on a Budget. I plan to start using this as a guide to help me with eating healthier foods that are also affordable. I’ll keep you posted on my progress but I’ll leave you with the link to the website and a few of the tips. If you have any suggestions on where to shop for healthy and reasonably priced foods in the Chicago-land area please leave a comment on the post! Also share any healthy recipes that I along with other readers could use as we become more conscious and healthier eaters TOGETHER:)
Water is also a healthy option. It helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated—causing tiredness, low energy, and headaches. It’s common to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying well hydrated will also help you make healthier food choices.
Water is always a GREAT option!!….It’s one of the best sources of nutrients for the body and it’s FREE!!!!
