Healthy Eats for 99 cents!

Call us pitiful, but our family loves going to the 99 cent only store!  We went today and filled our cart with 31 different items, ranging from deodorant, July 4th hats, playdoh, steel wool pads AND healthy food!

Sure, there are a lot of food items in the 99 cent store that will not help you lose weight after baby (try the cookie aisle for starters) but did you know that you can get lots of fruits and vegetables for $1 too?

One dollar items include bananas, nectarines, lettuce, salad, carrots, bell pepper, onions, kiwis, broccoli and spinach.  We bought two bunches of bananas, cut them up and put them in the freezer.  Try this for a summer treat – frozen bananas are delicious! 

Eating healthy doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg – you just have to get a little creative! 

Today’s Action Step:  Where do you shop for fresh fruits and vegetables at a good price?  If you don’t know, ask your healthy friends for new store ideas.
