I wish over my many years as a Registered Dietitian, I had a dollar (or at least a good or freebie coupon) for every time I heard eating healthy is too expensive $$$$$ It can be discouraging to hear that high sugar, high fat foods are so much cheaper. I usually respond that obesity and unhealthy eating can be very expensive too. Just consider the high health costs related to diabetes, hypertension, poor immune function, heart disease, strokes, just to name a few.
Weight can even be normal, but that doesn’t mean you are in good health. In fact, if your waist is over 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men, you are also at an increased risk for disease. Let’s start that journey to healthier eating, while still saving $$$$$
1 Look at your grocery bill and see if you are “loaded” down with chips, candy, cookies, soda, refined products, etc. – How much would you save if you cut down on half of these?
2) Dietary supplements in most cases are unneeded and largely unregulated thanks to a law passed in 1994 – DSHEA
(info here: http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/?p=10930 )
See a Registered Dietitian – RD (yes, I am biased) for a general appointment instead. The RD can guide you to what supplements you may actually need and others to avoid.
* Don’t buy weight loss supplements, many are being recalled because of prescription drugs being illegally added. Don’t buy un-researched products like AirBorne. Good healthy food in your diet enhances your immune system, not dietary supplements. Lots of $$$$$ saved!!!
3) * Switch from white rice to brown rice. White refined pasta to whole wheat pasta. Use 100% whole grain bread. Combine the refined and the whole product until the “family”, gets used to it! Dilute all juice slowly until it is finally ½ water and ½ juice (save half of the $$$$$) or avoid juice completely. Avoid all “drinks” that are NOT 100% juice. Do NOT buy bottled water!! Lots of $$$$$ saved!!
* Cut down on your meat intake (expensive). Use alternate meat sources like soy and dried beans! Cut down on salt intake. I am always surprised when people complain about the high cost of fruits and vegetables, but not meat!!! Use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes.
* Drink more water
4) * It is hard to pass up freebies, even if they are unhealthy food choices – take those products and “spruce” them up with healthier additions. I always have on hand the following: wheat germ; dried beans like dark red kidney beans or black beans (beans are VERY inexpensive); walnuts and almonds; low sodium V-8 (vegetable juice) just to name a few.
a) Making some cookies or a cake – add chopped walnuts and wheat germ to the flour
b) Got a cheap box mix of macaroni and cheese – you don’t need the margarine or butter. Add some additional whole wheat pasta to it. Blend in some pureed carrots or use jars of baby carrots.
c) Rice as the side dish – add kidney/black beans to the dish. Replace the water with vegetable or tomato juice.
d) Replace margarine and/or butter with olive oil when the recipe permits it. You don’t need a lot!!
e) Add wheat germ and walnuts to oatmeal.
Be healthier and save money at the same time!!
