If there's one thing I hear over and over it's the phrase "It's so hard to eat healthy without spending a ton of money." And I get it, the thought of eating organic and sustainable can be considered a little pricey when you're comparing organic broccoli at around $3.95 a bunch to regular broccoli at about $2.99. But let's think about it for a moment:
But these are truths that we need to face. These are the facts and are just a few of the things I will be talking about at this weekends event "Eating Healthy on a Budget" with my good friends at The Nature Gallery Yoga Studio. (click the link above to find out more)
I am deeply passionate about eating healthy and helping others in their journey to a healthier lifestyle and I love sharing knowledge when I'm able. And these items are just a few things I will be covering in this Sunday's upcoming talk and food demonstration along with:
I've even put together a week's worth of healthy meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with the ingredient list to show you that yes, it actually can be done on a budget.
There is limited space and seats are filling up quickly so don't wait until the last minute, go ahead and reserve your spot today HERE and let's have some fun while learning to eat clean. Oh, and I'll be showing you how to prepare a dish and passing out some healthy grub too.
If you have questions, go ahead and place them in the comments below or hit me up online. I'm happy to answer.
Hope to see you there!
Sustainable eating is about choosing foods that are healthful to our environment AND our bodies. It’s about nourishing ourselves wholly and completely. Providing pleasure but preserving the food system for the future. It leads to healthy, thriving, individuals and communities, as well as a better, more balanced ecosystem.
There are so many benefits when we lean towards sustainable eating:
Some of us will never be able to grow our own food. I have been afforded the opportunity to have a small garden at my home and have been able to grow a few vegetables and herbs, but unless you're a farmer the best way to support the benefits of sustainable farming is to eat sustainably. Do it now! Take a look at what you have in your fridge. Think about where it came from. Do you know where it came from? Did you meet the farmer that produced it? Did you pick it up at the local farmers market? Did it come from Malaysia? A package?
Here are a few tips to start eating sustainably:
Let's face it, our current Health-care system is a joke! So many of us are sick, lethargic, diabetic, and taking this pill and that (some, for the rest of our lives, so they've told us) and we feel no way out. Could it be that by changing our diets to a more sustainable eating - way of life - could just be the very thing that fixes this Health-care system? Not Congress, nor our President. YOU could just be the one in control of that.
Food is health! Health doesn't happen in the healthcare system nor does it happen by accident. It's what you do in your kitchen and what you intentionally eat 365 days a year. The question is, what's it worth? There is a price and that price is changing our diets, our lifestyle. But the end so justifies the means.
There is great satisfaction in knowing that you are feeding yourself with the best possible ingredients and food you can find to stay healthy and that you actively support sustainable agriculture, your community and your beautiful world!
