People often identify time and money as the biggest obstacle to making healthful change in their lives. Sweet Freedom is here to bust this myth and let you know how you can actually SAVE by making healthier choices.
It seems that eating healthy has been inherently connected with spending massive amounts of money at Whole Foods and other organic markets. It is true that if you’re eating healthy, it is completely possible to rack up a grocery bill upwards of $100 a day.
This happens when you head into a grocery store looking for the exotic healthy options such as powders and juices that come in beautiful packaging. Racking up a grocery bill isn’t exclusive to healthy eating, however.
Just as you can spend lots of money on health foods, you can also overspend on junk food. The difference is that the health food will do you a lot more good in the long run than the junk that keeps you coming back for more.
The bottom line is if you want to eat healthily, then buying fresh organic produce, legumes, beans and whole grains will burden your wallet a lot less than loading your cart with various packaged foods that are chemically designed to keep you coming back for more.
It is also so essential to recognize that when we’re nourishing our bodies, we are buying for nutrients not for volume. If you’re diet mainly consists of processed foods loaded with sugar, then yes, your belly may be full physically but chemically, your body will be calling out for the nutrients that those foods have been stripped of.
Remember that the issue of time and money is only surface level and it’s often times used as an excuse when someone hasn’t identified a deeper “why” for making healthy change.
It doesn’t matter what your “why” is but it should be the motivating factor to keep you on the path of progression. If you’re a parent, it may be that you want to live long enough to see your children grow up.
It doesn’t matter who or what you are, you just need to have a reason (or reasons) that this change is important to you. Do you want to be capable in the workplace or wake up each day with amazing energy?
Having an arsenal of “why’s” is what is going to push the issue of time and money to the wayside as your why becomes far more important than any excuse that you can conjour up.
So, decide why you want to bring your best self to this Earth and act on it, we’re here to help you along the way.
