Switching to a healthier, clean-eating lifestyle can be tough on your pocketbook. But just because you think healthy foods are expensive doesn’t give you an excuse not to do it. It’s important that everyone has the opportunity to eat healthy food that fuels their body in a way that makes them feel great. 


In this episode, I’m sharing 10 easy ways to help you maximize your grocery budget so you can start eating the healthiest foods and feeling your best. These are tried and true methods I’ve used in our family to bring down our grocery bills. It is absolutely not as cheap as it could be if we were just eating popcorn or some other cheap foods. But getting into that intersection between healthy eating and being able to save money as much as you can is a great start!

Hopefully, this episode will give you great ideas about living the healthiest life possible in the most affordable and sustainable way – both for you and your family. 


In this episode, you will hear:

  • Concerns around the supply of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Prioritizing nutrient-dense food
  • Getting locally grown produce and its many benefits
  • How the respiration process works
  • Where to get local produce
  • Buying in bulk and stocking up on marked-down items
  • Buying dried beans
  • Skipping the beverages
