Eat Healthy on a Budget
Healthy living is based on consistent exercise and eating right; that said, many people don’t have the financial ability to stock their cabinets with a wide assortment of low-calorie, nutrient-dense foods. If you’re struggling to balance your budget with a desire to improve your health, learn how you can meet your nutritional needs without spending a fortune at the checkout counter.
Get your omega fatty acids
Studies have shown that the omega fatty acids found in fish can improve brain function and decrease the likelihood of developing certain diseases; however, the tastiest fish tends to cost a little more. Additionally, most types of fish contain troubling amounts of mercury. If you’re looking for a cheaper way to meet your daily requirement of omega fatty acids, opt for other omega-rich foods, such as avocados or winter squash. If you don’t like the taste of these foods, you can also get significant amounts of omega fatty acid by enjoying a bowl of Mom’s Healthy Secrets Omega Active cereal.
Add fiber to your diet
Studies have shown that fiber has the ability to ward off certain types of cancers, while promoting healthy weight management at the same time. Fortunately, there are a variety of fiber-rich foods available to thrifty consumers. Small servings of split peas, lentils and black beans pack an astounding amount of fiber; and since they are so fiber-rich, you don’t have to eat as much, meaning you won’t have to buy as much. Again, if you’re not a huge fan of beans and vegetables, you can always eat a fiber-rich bran cereal, such as Mom’s Healthy Secrets Fibre Fit.
Exciting new research has revealed that berries contain powerful antioxidants that may have the ability to slow aging and prevent disease. Unfortunately, most berries are costly, and many consumers simply can’t afford to consistently stock their refrigerators with fresh blackberries, grapes, blueberries and strawberries. If you are interested in getting more antioxidant-rich berries into your diet, choose a healthy breakfast cereal rich with dehydrated fruits. Mom’s Healthy Secrets cereals contain delicious goji berries, raisins and strawberries that provide consumers with an affordable way to attain antioxidant protection.
