Staying healthy is very important to me. I won’t say it always has been because there were absolutely times in my life I was not as healthy as I could have been.

Staying Healthy On A Budget

Plan your meals/shop for deals: One of the biggest ways to stay healthy on a budget is to both meal plan and shop deals. If you want to shop at Whole Foods by all mean do that but still shop for deals. Every store has coupons, sales, etc. By meal planning, you can find deals and also ensure you are eating healthy.

Eat whole foods: No I do not mean the store, haha but I do mean eating fruits, veggies, grains, nuts, etc. Whole good foods. Don’t fill your body with processed things even though it can be tempting. Cheap does not = healthy always.

Use free health apps: I love using health apps and most of them are free. Fitbit, My Fitness Pal, I Track Bites, etc. These are great ways to track fitness without spending money!

Reuse water bottles: I have a Yeti which was a bigger investment water bottle but I take it everywhere and never buy water. Buying water out can get very expensive and bottled water is also not super great for the environment.

Check out free exercise classes, trials: Most things like Obe Fitness, Peloton, Barre studios, etc have free trials and they are an awesome way to workout and try workouts that may be different from what you normally do.

Take advantage of your surroundings: Trails, lakes, your own neighborhood, a free apartment gym, all things you can use to get exercise and stay healthy without spending much money! If you live in an apartment or condo with a gym you are already paying for the amenities so you may as well use them!

      For us to stay healthy on a budget, I practice wise shopping choices. I get whatever fruit is in season, and I get them from the farmers market. Not a single member of my family has gym membership. We do our own exercises, and keep physically active – walk instead of drive or spend time gardening, weeding, or mowing the lawn. We also make our own meals from scratch. It is healthier (and costs less) than buying the pre-cooked, pre-packaged stuff in the grocery stores.

      These are great tips. Meal planing is a life and money saver indeed. I also save tons of money buying bulk foods and buying things on sale. Thanks for sharing this.

      I do everything you mentioned plus I look for discount coupons which can make a great difference. I also plan my shiopping ahead and go to specific places for specific items that I know are priced competiviely.
