Lesson 1: Shopping

If you want to eat better, unless you’re living the natural lifestyle, you eat the food you buy. So really the key to being a healthy eater is being a good shopper.

I know that a lot of people LOVE fruits and vegetables (at least specific fruits and veggies), but cost is a factor to them since they do not prioritize it or do not know how or where to get great deals.

I know how to make it happen at any income. I’ve made it when I was pulling in thousands, and when I had a shoestring budget. And yet… even people with millions in the bank complain about the cost of organic food because they think it’s a bad deal when they compare it with conventional.

Anyhow, smart shopping saves lives. And saves money.

More money = more mangoes

Mangoes are an example of a delicious all you can eat nutritious food that some people are only buying 1 or 2 because of the price and them not being rightfully prioritized.

The bottom line though is that if you want to eat healthy, you must buy the healthy food you want to be eating. You must buy the quantity of food too. You can’t eat pounds of fruits and veggies if you only buy ounces.

Veggies and fruits store quite well in the fridge. Though you should not refrigerate unripe fruit, because the refrigeration stops the ripening process.

Anyhow,
