Believe me, it is possible to have a healthier lifestyle and spend less at the same time! In the current financial climate many of us will need to tighten our belts and see expensive health-kicks as a thing of the past. Here are some easy tips to reduce out goings and increase your well-being at the same time!
Start the day – the right way!
How many of us roll out of bed, run out of the house and grab a bite to eat on the way in? We’ve all heard it before but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Toast or cereal are a great way to start the day as they provide carbohydrate to fuel the metabolism and give you an early morning energy boost. In the UK, most bread and cereal is fortified with the all-important B vitamins necessary to help you get the most out of you food and keep your hair, eyes and skin healthy.
So how is having breakfast at home cheaper? A 50g bowl of own-brand cereal such as muesli with semi skimmed milk and a glass of orange juice costs around 42p compared to £1.60 for a single cereal bar and bottle of orange juice. Over a five working days that’s already a saving of £5.90 per week!
So, set that alarm, get up 10 minutes earlier and give your body the start to the day it needs!
