Save Money with These Easy Food Swaps

Money is tight for many of us these days and it’s easy to be tempted to fill your shopping cart with less healthy, cheaper fare.

Save_Money_On_FoodTrouble is, downgrading the quality of your food is never a bargain. It’s just way too expensive to lower your immune system and succumb to an avoidable health condition by eating poorly!

So don’t scrimp on the good stuff…just follow a few of these food swaps and shop smarter

1.    Raspberries from the produce section…swap for raspberries from the frozen section
2.    6-ounce yogurt cups…swap for a 32-ounce carton of yogurt and add honey and nuts
3.    Bottled water, juice and soda…swap for filtered water flavored with a squeeze of lemon or lime
4.    Ready meals in boxes or cans…swap for quick-cooking staples like beans, lentils, rice (Tip: to make cooking time faster, soak them overnight.)
5.    Bottled salad dressing…swap for olive oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper
6.    Boneless, skinless chicken breasts…swap for a whole chicken
7.    Pound of steak…swap for half-pound of same and use the same flavor in rice or potatoes
8.    Boxed cold cereal…swap for bulk or bagged whole-grain flakes
9.    Bag of frozen oven fries…swap for a bag of baby potatoes
10.    Bottled tea…swap for loose-leaf bulk green tea, mint leaves or other herbs
11.    Double or triple your normal recipes and freeze the leftovers

After you try one of these, let me know what you think!

Your health is just too valuable.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
