Find Your Healthy Self Without Breaking the Bank.
Many people believe healthy living costs too much money. Instead of buying into some of the most common health food scams, consider how crucial natural food and exercise are to the body.
Wholesome food and regular physical activity does not have to cost a fortune.
The following tips from z-antenna can help you figure out how to get healthier without bombarding your bank account.
Be Creative With Your Drinks
Hydration is critical to your health and wellness. While water is essential, the juice is packed full of nutrition. Forget expensive grocery store juices. Instead, consider making your healthy concoctions. You supply the fruit, vegetables, water, and other ingredients.
Or, for example, consider carrot, clementine, and pineapple juice for a recipe full of vitamins A and C.
All you need is a blender!
Experts claim that if you add juice to your diet, you may lower your risk of heart disease. Only one-tenth of Americans meet the recommended fruit and vegetable intake.
In her article, Danielle DeGroot answers all the questions about juicing. Juice makes it easier to get valuable nutrients you may not include in your regular diet. Juice aids in hydration and can keep you energetic and active.
However, if you are a person who prefers water and are passionate about its quality, we have some tips for you too:
Be Picky About What You Eat
According to the latest scientific research by Yang Du and co-authors, restaurants tend to serve food high in sodium, sugar, and calories. Additionally, restaurant food, including fast food and take-away food, tends to lack servings of vegetables and fruit.
Most people know the struggle of finding something healthy on a restaurant menu. If you want to prioritize your health, spend less time waiting on food in a restaurant and more time preparing meals at home.
Too salty, cooked food may be a cause of chronic fatigue in winter-spring time. Make sure you read our article about Chronic fatigue and ways to recover from it.
Not only can you prepare healthier options for yourself, but you do not have to worry about the high price of eating out. According to statistics, the average American household spends about $3,000 on dining out every year! You definitely save more money purchasing fresh ingredients.
To save money, focus on produce like fruits and vegetables when in season. Additionally, you can grow your food, depending on your yard space and climate.
Try to limit meat consumption. Not only do most people need less meat than they consume, but meat tends to be more expensive than healthy nonperishables and produce.
Financial experts claim that meal planning can also help you save money at the grocery store. Be careful not to purchase anything outside of your weekly plan.
When you know how to plan everything you need, you are less likely to have to make extra runs to the store. There are also apps available to meal plan and track your nutrition throughout the day.
Consider Health Insurance
Personal development is always a worthy goal, but getting in shape, eating a healthier diet, or taking control of your mental health can be challenging.
Counseling and mental healthcare, working with dietitian, massage and chiropractor are ways health insurance can help you achieve your “new me” right from now. Read our article to find out more:
Be Active, Share and Earn
Consider walking or riding a bike for short trips instead of taking your car.
Riding a bike is an exciting way to sneak in a workout when you need to run errands. Bike riding boosts endorphins, helps you focus, and may help you wake up more energized in the morning.
Choose a physical activity (running, exercises) in the fresh air instead of the indoor air conditioning of a cramped fitness club.
If you’re passionate about physical activity, you can turn saving money into earning money. While putting effort into your well-being, why not share your valuable experience?
For example, you could start a business as a fitness trainer, health and wellness blogger, or nutritionist. Try to help others find their version of healthy. Other ideas include opening a wellness store, a yoga studio, or a sports shop.
Since starting a new business requires a marketing effort, consider affordable ways to sell yourself. In her article, Victoria Treyger offers 6 Ways to Market Your Small Business for Less Than $100.
Living a healthy life does not have to be out of reach because of the amount of money.
You can make healthy choices without spending your entire paycheck on groceries or gym memberships (just read this article once again:)).
