Dirt Cheap Health Food

Getting fit and healthy doesn’t have to break the bank.

The bulk food aisle in Fred Meyer is loaded with fantastic nutrition for affordable prices.

Multiple Servings for LESS than a dollar

  • Lentils (slow carbs, protein, fiber): One dollar for five servings.
  • Oatmeal (slow carbs, protein, fiber, lower cholesterol): One dollar for five servings
  • Walnuts (healthy fats — omega-3, protein, fiber): One dollar for two servings
  • Nuts/Seeds, unsalted (healthy fats, lower cholesterol, fiber, weight loss): Sunflower seeds on the cheaper end, and Brazil nuts on the more expensive side.
  • Yogurt, unflavored (protein, loaded with healthy probiotics): Research indicates that yogurt not only helps people lose weight, but helps them maintain muscle while losing weight. Less than a dollar a serving.
  • Tuna, canned (HIGH PROTEIN, some healthy omega-3’s): Look out for when its on sale, and then buy a bunch. For consideration of heavy metals, consume no more than 1-2 servings per week.
  • Garlic, bulbs (Delicious herb, also has antiviral properties for healthy immune system): Store in a cool, dry, place.

Does it really make sense to eat at restaurants all the time? From both a money and a weight loss perspective: NO WAY!

Save your money, put it in the rainy day fund or stocks.

Meanwhile, eat healthy for leanness and longevity!
