Those of you who know me know that I’m a fuss-free person who believes that good things don’t have to come with an expensive price tag.
I’ve always looked for good prices and discounts wherever possible, because even though I believe in living a life of abundance, my parents have always taught me the values of being money-conscious and saving where possible.
I’m a huge believer in having habits that are sustainable and that don’t burst the bank.
In the same way that I shop for clothes and shoes of value, I also apply this lifestyle ethic to my eating habits.
In the past one year since I’ve started eating healthier – moving away from processed foods and gravitating more towards real, wholesome foods – I’ve realized that some times though, healthier food choices do come with more hefty prices, especially if you lean towards gluten-free or grain-free recipes like I do.
In our fast-paced modern world, there is such a wide range of unhealthy junk food available at a fraction of the price of wholesome meals.
Naturally, this often results in many choosing to eat cheap and unhealthy food as opposed to slightly more expensive but nutritious meals.
Most of my friends tell me that one of the obstacles preventing them from eating and cooking with healthier ingredients is that these healthier foods are often more expensive.
Many blog readers also comment once in a while telling me that the ingredients used in some of my grain-free recipes (such as almond flour) are beyond their budget.
I understand the dilema, and feel that it’s a pity for people to choose what they know is not good for health, simply because of cost.
But good news friends! Healthy, sustainable eating is now possible!
