Eat Well For Cheap

Processed foods can seem cheap but work out the cost per meal and the cost to your health, and good food isn’t that expensive.  My fave foods are eggs, oatmeal, brocolli and apples.  I use my crock pot with cheap cuts of meat and through in some potatos and carrots.  I buy lots of frozen berries when they are on sale.

Men’s Health worked out what are the cheap healthy foods compared to their processed counterparts.  Click here!

The list includes:

  • Eggs
  • Lentils
  • Canola oil
  • Bananas
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Pork loin chops
  • Top sirloin
  • Chicken leg
  • Farmed catfish

US Too Fat and Too Much Salt

Canada should limit salt in processed food, but US food is far worse than Canadian fast food/processed food.  Just ask any Canadian upon returning from the US – takes a while for your digestive system to return to normal!

Both articles from CNN.com.

Healthy Food Makes Us Happy – Bad Food Makes Us Crappy

healthy_food

Cute title, no?  I read this article today online at TheStar.com titled “Healthy eating is about chemistry“.   It’s about how healthy foods provide our bodies with the building blocks for chemicals that stabilize our moods, blood sugar and nutritional needs, and how when we eat processed foods we are sabotaging our state of mind as well as the scale.

Interesting read.  Take a look!
