Meatless Monday! (Kind of)

So my meatless monday meal today consists of some falafel from a few weeks ago ( I froze a couple to see how they hold up) hummus and salad.  So I have no fancy recipe for you today.

The other day I was talking with my mother and she was talking about an article she read in Time that talked about how centuries ago being curvy or chubby was a sign of wealth because you could afford to eat more.

Now it's a sign you can't afford to buy healthy foods like fresh veggies and fruits and are instead eating cheaper, carb-laden foods.  I found this really interesting, I can see the point of the article... I know I spend a lot more on groceries now than I did before I started eating better.  But it's not impossible to stick to a budget and stay healthy.

So I went back to Time for some advice- Healthy Eating Costs

And some tips from Spark People- Healthy Eating On Budget

How do you guys eat healthy without breaking the bank?

  1. My secret is, well, spending more money on food than on other things in my life (cable, an inefficient car, expensive clothes, etc.). A few ways I do save money, though, is to skip processed foods and make my own, such as almond milk and soup. I need to start doing my own vegetable broth, too. I also make sure produce is the majority of what I buy.
