If you think you need to spend a lot of money to lose weight, you can blame the expensive juice detoxes and plans that call for super powders and other uncommon ingredients.
Specialty products are in no way necessary to eat healthy and lose weight. Some of the least expensive foods are the most nutritious and helpful for weight loss.
Eating right does not need to cost your entire paycheck. Here are a few ways to help…
Buy Frozen Produce
Frozen fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh ones, if not more so. Because they are frozen at the peak of ripeness, they retain more nutritional value than those that sit in a warehouse, then on a truck, then in the store and then in your house. Plus you waste less if you use frozen.
Shop the Bulk Aisle
Things like oats and nuts do not perish easily and can be cheaper to buy in bulk versus in prepackaged containers. Compare and stock up on the things you use often.
Hit the Sales
As you plan your meals each week, check the sales flyers online. Buy things that will stay fresh in your fridge. Also, don’t forget coupons and the loyalty programs many supermarkets offer.
Freeze Your Own
When fresh fruit is cheap in the summer, buy it, wash it, dry it thoroughly and then freeze it. Now you have blueberries you can enjoy in November, for way less than what they would cost in November.
Planning for the week is best way to save money because you will decrease food waste, and food waste is probably the biggest expense we have. If you see, bulk packs of ground beef are on sale, for example, buy one and make burgers, meatballs, and tacos. Freeze things in individual portions for easy reheating on busy nights.
