Get The Most Out Of Your Grocery Budget Without Compromising Quality

Eating healthy doesn't have to cost a fortune. Even on a budget there are many creative and easy ways to make that dollar stretch while not compromising quality. Even adopting some of these clever tips will make a huge difference, especially if you are cooking for a whole family.

  • 💲 Proper Planning: Plan your meals, make a grocery list and actually stick to the list when shopping.
  • 💲 Prep At Home In Bulk: Buy your food in bulk family packs. Cook large portions, and portion out your meals in containers. you'll save on groceries, enjoy knowing your meals are ready to heat, avoid waste, limit leftovers and save on dining out.
  • 💲 Eat Before Shopping. It goes without saying that grocery shopping on an empty stomach is a recipe for disaster.
  • 💲 Buy Seasonal/Local. Buying your whole foods fresh, seasonally and from local sources generally allows you to alter your diet to focus on fresh, supports your local businesses, and can be less costly.
  • 💲 Quit being a junkie: Ditch the junk food, seriously. You would be surprised to see how much you may be paying for fast food, coffee, lunch, snacks, soda, crackers, cookies, prepackaged meals and processed foods.
  • 💲 Save: Don't be shy to buy generic, stock up on sales, clip coupons, shop BOGO's, visit discount stores, buy less expensive cuts of meat.
  • 💲 Consider meatless. Your protein is usually the most expensive part of your meal. Meatless options can give you a bigger bang for your nutritional buck. Try having one or two days per week where you use other protein sources, such as legumes, hemp seeds, eggs or canned fish.
  • 💲 Packed lunch: Dining out can add up over the course of a year to a pretty hefty sum. If you followed the steps up to here then your fridge is full of prepped food for lunches. Carry bottled water, bring coffee with you, bring snacks to work.

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego.

He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine.

In 1992, Dr Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr Minkoff is one of the most in demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein.

The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness.

Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 44 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teachers to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
