I was in a store recently and this couple was shopping. The man said to his wife, “we don’t need that, have you looked in the cupboards?”
That made me feel so happy! Then she revealed, after we all engaged in conversation, “but what if we go hungry?”
Interesting – don’t you think??
So many times, I’ve had people say to me they cannot afford to eat healthy (it’s too expensive), they cannot afford a nutrition plan, they cannot afford a personal trainer.
Yet, they over eat, don’t plan meals, buy way too many take outs, comfort eat and throw food away!
This is no different than lighting fire to a £50 note, then sitting there and saying I don’t have any money!
We all need money, we eat several times a day, so a large part of our expenditure is going to go on food. But sometimes WAY TOO MUCH is spent and that money could be used intelligently for other things.
How to be smart with money and food – key points:
-Don’t over buy – think love NOT fear…..there’s always enough!
-Look in your cupboards and plan before you shop
-Cut back on take out breakfasts and lunches – bring your own
-Aim to throw less food away from your fridge and freezer!
a) help this gorgeous planet we live on
b) have more energy and a slimmer waistline
c) save money (who doesn’t want that??)
And since saving money is like making money, you’d be wise to start doing this asap!
You cannot afford NOT to invest in your body. It’s the only one you got!
Money is such a big part of our lives so this week be really consciously aware of what you are doing with food and money and give yourself a refresh – you’ll be happy you did!
