11 Ways To Be Healthy When You're Broke

People often ask me how I turned my health around while working hours over 50 per week, and being on government aid. (Yes, you can be broke and working hard.) These are the things that worked for me and could work for you, too!

1. Find foods you love, and find ways to work them into everything.

I love the onion. I like raw, grilled, soup with mushrooms, sandwiches, salads. If I have onions around that I can make a meal that I will enjoy. Some favorites of my friends are mushrooms, avocado, Sriracha sauce and canned refried beans.

2. See family recipes old.

I’m Polish, but I do not like most of the traditional food. When it comes to sauerkraut and Polish sausage pirogies, I say no thanks. After convincing my dad to make some lifestyle changes, he found some old family recipes that had never used before. We found delicious pea and barley soup, mushroom soup, and some ways to use pumpkin. I love this! This is a great way to learn about their history, and gives you a reason to hang out with her grandmother.

3. Stop using supplements, or make your own.

This was a big one for me. They are expensive, only a few of them are good for you, and some are downright dangerous. If you need a boost, read labels and make your own. I boost of energy? Beets, arugula, and a high quality green tea or yerba matte. I test drive? Fenugreek powder! I shake recovery? Cocoa powder and maca. If you like the powdered form, use the money you save to buy a dehydrator, the dust of their own food. It’s good to know what you put in your body. This is a fun experiment: I can do more push-hands stop after kale powder, powder or mint? Find out what works for you, and maybe you can make your own supplement, get rich and give to 5%.

4. Starch wisely.

The best may cost a little more than white rice and pasta, but they pay dividends in flavor, nutrition, and satisfaction. Starchy vegetables are cheap and plentiful, but it helps to know what is the best bang for your buck. Sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, pumpkin, quinoa, teff, millet, beans and lentils are my favorite. A good rule of thumb is to go for vibrant colors. But what if you do not know how to use them?

5. soup all.

Seriously, from the French onion curry imitation chicken noodle soups are easy to make, great tasting, good for you, and turn water and vegetables in a hearty meal. This is where the discovery of other cultures pays most dividends. Instead of chili with football, imagine a lentil dal, curry or red for a party on game day. Need to add flavor in a hurry? Ginger root, jalapeno, lemon grass, basil, cilantro, parsley and can be added to any soup to change the flavor.

6. Buy frozen fruits.

I prefer fresh, but frozen is often cheaper and lasts longer. Also, if I’m just going to turn it into a smoothie, is a not-smarter.

7. Have a pot luck.

I am social. I like having people, but I am also indebted. Bars and restaurants are very good, but I prefer to take the match to me, and reduce the cost of the process. A weekly themed meal with friends is a great way to do this, share recipes, and most importantly, have a good time.

8. Snack smart.

If you do not have enough to eat a whole piece (not a watermelon, but think apple, orange, two kiwis) fruit, then do not eat hungry. If you need a snack, know the places where you can pick a banana on the go. While a personal bag fries may be cheaper, that will do nothing good for you. I love crunchy snacks? Try dried vegetables are fruits; that are good for travel and are far better than most packaged snacks.


9. Investing in a bike.

It is fun and healthy, plus it reduces gas consumption and road rage.

10. cancel your gym membership.

Only if you can work out of the gym. Use that money for the bike, or at least some home gym equipment. You will be amazed at the results that can be achieved with almost nothing but your body.

11. Walk more.

You can check out the museums, art galleries, parks or move on foot at low cost or free to make your mind and body some good.
