It occurred to me that maybe this eating healthier stuff isn't as expensive as I thought it would be after all...
For example, our family took a trip to the grocery store this week, mainly to get milk. As I was walking around I was very tempted to grab some oreos and pizza rolls. :) My husband kindly reminded me that those weren't very healthy. Then, my husband was tempted by some Seirra Mist. It was my turn to remind him that pop in general is unhealthy.
Junk that our bodies don't need can be expensive. It's far less expensive to only eat what our bodies need. It's just harder. That's why I'm so glad my husband is on board with all of this. It would be so very difficult to stand by these new choices without support in my weak moments.
So we saved at least $7-8 on impulse junk food in just one shopping trip. I think that money would be much better spent towards healthy splurges like fresh dates, apples and raw oats. What do you think? Have you found healthy eating to be more expensive or less expensive? Do you have support in your healthier eating journey?
