Above is a photo I saw on Facebook recently. It may seem like “healthy” food is more expensive but in many cases it is not. It may take more time to prepare it but if you do some of the preparation ahead of time or use the crockpot it may be easier than you think to prepare meals at home instead of going out or stopping for fast food.

You may not see any difference now but in the long run you may face the consequences of how you treat your body now.

With increase in cancer diagnosis and other health issues it is becoming more important than ever to watch what you eat and how active you are.

One tip I have heard is to shop the perimeter of the grocery stores. In most cases this is the meat, produce and dairy departments.

Also, as I have mentioned numerous times, I feel it is important to teach kids how to cook. If they do not learn how to, they will be dependent on eating out a majority of their lives.

Two of the blogs I follow that address this are MoneySavingMom and LifeAsMom.

Along with being good for your health, cooking at home more will likely also be better on your wallet.
