11/28/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal- Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 29. November 2014 07:35

For many people, cash is really tight right now. To utilize the benefits of clean eating, you need to include at least three servings of vegetables in your diet every day. I eat so much spinach every day that I choose to spend the extra money and eat only organic spinach to help control the chemical intake my body takes in. But, even non-organic vegetables can be costly.


I researched at my neighborhood grocery (clearly an unscientific study), which vegetables had the highest nutritional value at the best price. Broccoli, carrots, beans, and cabbage were all a good value. Bananas (they are a great source of potassium and fiber), oranges, apples and grapefruit fit the list.   Milk  provides a good value for the nutritional impact, and of course, water (try to drink at least 48 oz. of water per day).

 Try eating/pricing seasonal fruits and vegetables, and check out your neighborhood farmer’s market . 

 In the winter months, frozen vegetable medleys, peas, and other varieties are nutritionally sound and can bring diversity to your diet.

 Respond with ideas at the bottom of the blogs, and let us all know about your finds.
