I love clean-eating. Since I’ve changed my overall diet to cleaner foods, I’ve benefited in many noticeable ways. My skin is clearer, I’ve lost about 22 pounds, I have more energy and stamina and my mood has improved. I feel better than ever before and I no longer want to nap after every meal.
1-Week, Clean-Eating, Fresh Food Meal Plan & Grocery List for $30.
When people ask me what the trick is, I tell them to just “eat clean.” I often hear this in turn: “it’s too expensive.”
This will be said by the same people that will order pizza for lunch or buy two boxes of Chips Ahoy! cookies for home.
“I can’t afford it” is not a viable excuse for most people anymore. Yes, it’s better to eat organic and grass-fed, but if you can’t afford that then non-organic vegetables and non-grass fed meat is better than highly-processed, packaged foods. Two packages of Chips Ahoy! cookies will set you back about the same as a pound of non-steroid, non-antibiotic chicken. The same price could get you 3 pounds or more of lesser-quality chicken.
My point is – you don’t need to have a lot of money to make a lifestyle change. Still need the snacks in the home? I stopped craving all of that junk over time, and you may too.
