Trying to change up your lifestyle toward clean eating and healthier living is the perfect motivation for an entire revamping of character! However, sometimes, the price of eating healthy can leave a big hole in your pocket that just might deter you for life. We’ve all seen the prices for organic eggs, milk, produce, and everything else in between – pricey is not even the word for it! Although some of us find it necessary and not much of a big deal to spend the extra few bucks, for others it may hit their pockets hard! If you’re looking to eat healthy on a budget then we’ve got the perfect game plan for you!
Let us begin with the easiest and cheapest combo: Greek yogurt and mixed berries! Can you say yum?! The average cost for a small tub of greek yogurt can be anywhere between $1.25 – $2, where the average cost of mixed frozen berries can be somewhere around $3 – $4 dollars per 8-12 oz. bag. Not a bad price if you question us. Besides the obvious mixture of yogurt and frozen berries, these awesome combo is also great for creating smoothies throughout the day that will keep you refreshed and feeling great!
Our next favorite choice is for those of you who like to plan your meals ahead of time! Kale is an excellent choice for those who like to prepare their salads for the week ahead. Unlike lettuce, which will begin to wilt after a day or two, kale will withstand any moisture for a solid few days. You can get more for your money’s worth by opting for Kale instead of lettuce in your traditional salads!
