Eat Healthy, Save Money – Buy Food in Bulk

Eat Healthy, Save Money – Buy Food in Bulk

Eating healthy is an important part of any wellness plan. My wife (Melissa, The Avocado Queen) and I have decided that one place where we simply won’t scrimp is in the area of how healthy we eat. Still, with the economy not yet running at full steam and warnings about inflation in the news, there are plenty of smart ways to save money on healthy food.

One no-compromise way to save money on healthy food is to buy in bulk. This works great for dry foods like nuts, pasta, rice, buckwheat, oats, quinoa, beans, green tea, and dry spices. It also makes sense to stock up when you find a good deal on almond butter, pre-made curry (always check the ingredients for preservatives and unwanted chemicals on any pre-made foods), almond milk, soy sauce, or any other food with a naturally long shelf-life.

There are plenty of locations in the Raleigh/Durham area where you can buy in bulk or buy healthy foods. Just google for the locations in your area.

  • Sam’s Club
  • BJ’s Wholesale House
  • Whole Foods
  • Harris Teeter
  • WalMart Super Stores
  • Target Super Stores
  • Lowe’s Supermarkets
  • Publix

There are also specialty stores in Durham.

  • Whole Foods in Durham
  • Durham Co-op
  • Bulldega Urban Market
  • Li Ming’s Global Market
  • Around the World Market

With the cost of food rising and predicted to climb higher in the near future you can save quite a bit of money this way. Everyone likes saving money!

Live And Raw Foods Workshop

Live And Raw Foods Workshop

“Living” or “raw” foods are a great way to increase the nutritional density of your diet.  In this kind of diet lots of the dietary filler foods such as starches and meats get displaced by flavorful healthy vegetables and fruits with extremely high densities of vitamins and other beneficial nutrients as well as cancer fighting phytochemicals.  Even if you don’t choose to exclusively adopt this type of diet the recipes and techniques you will learn in a workshop such as this will add variety and quality to your diet.

Melissa, the instructor, is my wife so I can personally vouch for the deliciousness of the recipes you’ll be taught and get to try.  She will be putting the emphasis on easy and delicious recipes you will be able to make without exotic kitchen tools.
