Are you looking for healthy recipes on a budget that are realistic and that work – so you can finally lose weight, stop cravings, get healthy AND stay within your budget?
Well if you are sick and tired of:
Well, I can say I had the same struggle. I can remember when my life changed drastically and I was eating fast food, packaged foods or worse yet……no food.
After 5 years of marriage and being a stay at home mother I found myself as a single mother working full time and a part time job. Long story short, life changed and I learned MANY lessons – about time, coping, planning, focus and life.
What was more ironic was I worked as a Wellness Coach at a local YMCA and preached healthy eating but was finding that I was having a hard time practicing what I preached.
I had little time to prepare healthy meals and limited funds to purchase healthy, whole foods. And time to work out?? Ha!!! There was little of that too. In the past I had 2 hour leisurely workouts…..now I barely had 30 minutes. You can read more about my 20-40 minutes workouts under Frugal Fitness…..but for now let’s stick to nutrition.
So I knew what to eat and how to work out – but I didn’t have the time and didn’t always have the money to make it happen.
But I couldn’t talk the talk……and not walk the walk.
I couldn’t preach but not
actually practice it.
