It’s true, being healthy is not always cheap. But you have to make the commitment to a healthy lifestyle. It is something that you should budget into your life, in order to have a life. You have to sacrifice other things, to make it work. You can either go out to dinner once a week (and probably gain several pounds from eating over-sized portions, and having a few too many cocktails) or you can pay for a gym membership. You can purchase yet another new book (I am guilty of this one) or you can spend the few extra dollars on organic produce.
Today I have a listing of some great buys I found for a myriad of health related deals! Happy Shopping
A blender is a very important part of a healthy kitchen. Smoothies are a great way to get your daily fruit and veggie recommendations and as well as a dash of protein or other supplements. You can also use a blender to puree your own baby food for your little one – that way you can will know exactly what went into your baby’s belly. Or you can make your own pesto, red-pepper or garlic sauce, or even hummus. So many things are healthier when made from fresh ingredients. By just removing the preservatives you gain the nutrients! Try this one: Hamilton Beach 51101B Single-Serve Blender with Travel Lid, Black
Protein Powder is great for adding to smoothies, to turn them into a filling meal supplement. Some of us like very active lifestyles and as a result must eat on the go a lot of the time. This can result in unhealthy and/or excessive eating. If you make yourself a shake/smoothie with a shot or whey protein, you will fill fuller, because protein takes a little longer to digest. It’s not just a mind trick either, you can get your nutrients from a shake if you make it right. Try: DESIGNER WHEY Protein Supplement Powder
Keeping your muscles loose is a very important part of preventing injuries. Hot tubs/spas are really great for this, but not all of us have access to one after every work out. And furthermore, we don’t all have someone on “staff” that can give us a massage on a regular basis. That when a handheld massager is very convenient. You can do it yourself, or get some help from the hubby or children. After an extra intense workout you can come home to a great wand massager like this one: Homedics HHP-300 Extendable Percussion Massager
Every healthy home needs a weight scale. It is important to know your weight, because a drastic change in either direction needs to be addressed. One word of caution, it is not healthy for your psyche to weight yourself every single day, and especially not more than one a day. You weight will fluctuate a few pounds up or down from day to day, so you should really shoot for once a week weigh-ins.
