Be Healthy And Cheap with Replacement Items!
There are many things that you can do to cut back both on your spending and your waistline.
One of the easiest ways you can do so is start making small changes to your diet that will cost you little, nothing at all, or may even save you money! The great thing about trying replacement items is that often you’ll only notice a slight difference in your routine, which will make it easier to stick to and make permanent positive changes as compared to trying to revolutionize your schedule all in one day and getting overwhelmed.
Are you ready to replace your way to budget-minded fitness success? Give these methods a try, and you’ll likely be thrilled with the results.
Raw sugar/honey for white sugar. At first glance, this may seem like it would be more expensive, as granulated sugar is cheaper than either of these products. But the fact of the matter is that you’ll need to start cutting down your intake of sugar if you are wanting to make a serious positive change in your life as it is, and swapping out white sugar for these replacements will assist the change even more. Most people end up preferring the taste of raw sugar anyway, and since it has a stronger flavour you won’t need to use as much of it to get the sweet taste you want.
Water. Whatever else you’re drinking needs to be ditched in favour of water. Not to say that enjoying the occasional glass of milk or juice will go awry, but cutting out expensive lattes and fizzy drinks with water will cut your waistline dramatically and save you tons of money. Think about how much money you spend on fancy drinks and imagine it as money in your pocket instead. It’s likely that you’d need large pockets in order to get it all to fit.
Wheat bread for white. This is a move that will likely cost you nothing at all. Wheat breads are much better for you than overly processed whites, and will help up your whole-grain consumption for the day, and whole grains are one of the most important parts of the food pyramid to be eating. You might also want to back away from the slab of butter you put on your toast, but even if you just switch to wheat toast, you’ll be doing yourself a major favor with no change in cost.
Egg replacements/whites. Egg replacement is no more expensive than traditional eggs and has a lot fewer calories. If for whatever reason you can’t stomach the egg replacement, try removing the yolk from your cooking endeavors. Most of the fat and cholesterol in eggs is in the yolk, while the lean proteins are in the white.
