What is Good Food Worth to You?

There’s a lot of discussion lately about eating clean, and there’s a good reason for that — the better you eat, the better you will feel. Your health is determined by nutrition in more ways than you think. If you don’t have enough nutrients coming in, your body isn’t going to perform as well as you think it will, which would keep you from enjoying the health that you deserve.

Yet for every proponent of clean eating, there’s some critics a swell. Some critics don’t feel that food really makes a difference — just moderation. There’s no reason to have moderation for the sake of moderation if you’re just going to eat bad food. It’s better to make sure that you will be able to have a great life that’s filled with great health rather than thinking that being sick is the way life is supposed to be.

So, what is good food worth to you? When you really think about it, clean eating doesn’t have to be something that’s expensive. It’s just something that needs to be a priority for you. Vegetables, meats, eggs, cheese, nuts, and seeds are all components of a clean eating diet — and we can’t forget to mention fruit. The more whole foods that you can eat, the healthier that you’re going to be.

Yet it doesn’t have to be expensive — in fact, every grocery store runs a sales ad every weekly where certain things go on sale while other things don’t. You don’t want to find yourself being unable to get things done because you think that everything has to be expensive.

You can even combine forces with another family in order to buy more fruits, vegetables and even meats at one time. This lets you take advantage of weekly sales and still be able to store everything properly. Great bulk sales on meats are pretty common, but you do run into the classic problem of trying to figure out where to store it. Sharing meat with another family allows you to split costs and get the savings, while still having a place to put everything — what more could you want?

Don’t assume that you have to take on the road to healthy eating all at one time. It’s possible to just eat everything in steps. Don’t try to drop major food groups without giving yourself time to adjust — that will only make you want to stop clean eating.

Another factor that you will want to take into consideration is the support factor. Yes, there are going to be people that feel like you’re making a mistake, but you can’t do everything based on what other people want. You need to do what feels good for you and your body. A support group can help you bridge the gaps in your life when others are putting you down — why not start today?
