How To: Eat Healthy On A Budget
  • Plan your meals and write a shopping list - as the saying goes fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Plan your meals in advance and write a list of everything you need before you shop. This can work well when online shopping as you're less likely to buy things on a whim because you see they're on offer on the shelves.
  • Try #MeatlessMondays - meat tends to be the most expensive element of a meal. Try going veggie once a week, check out these protein packed vegetarian recipes
  • Use leftovers - make extra for your evening meals and use your leftovers for lunches. 
  • Be less wasteful - try not to throw away food, leftover veg at the bottom of the fridge can make great soups and casseroles.
  • Get cheap with your cuts - cheaper cuts of meat doesn't mean compromising on flavor! They just need a little more love, so dust off the slow cooker and cook them low and slow for a tasty dinner.

Coming from being a professional dancer, I transitioned into fitness because I couldn't stay still! In addition to partner management at MoveUSA, I teach fitness classes throughout NYC and spend my time eating, sleeping and breathing fitness! When not thinking about fitness, I'm taking a business course at FIT NYC. What keeps me motivated? Wanting to live the healthiest life possible and de-stress the natural way ;)
