Whether you are a young person just entering the work force, or up in age (like myself), retirement is probably something that comes across your mind at least once in a while. We all think about how we can effectively save money so we can retire, and ideally have money we can spend on things ranging from our mortgages to entertainment and traveling costs. For many, these savings plans usually come in the form of 401k investments, though other options are available.
So, you want to eat a whole food, plant-based diet but don’t know where to start? And hardest of all, you have concerns that joining this lifestyle will cause your grocery bill to skyrocket? If you are impacted by these thoughts, let me tell you there is a solution to eating a healthy, plant-based diet that will not break the bank. It is a misunderstanding that vegetarians and vegans spend extra money on the food they enjoy when compared to others. While it is certainly possible to rack up the food bill on any diet, with a little planning ahead and some simple considerations before you run out to the store, you will find you are spending a similar amount (if not less) than you did before.
Have you ever thought it could be healthy to overeat?
It is a common struggle for many. Overindulging in food may come easily for you, and may have heavily contributed to you packing on a few more pounds than you would have liked. You do not have to carry around this extra weight for the rest of your life, nor do you have to suffer with the poor health quality that tends to come with being very overweight or obese. As you may well know, there are two primary factors that impact your weight: the food you eat and your level of physical activity. A whole foods, plant-based diet holds the solution to your weight loss. This vegan weight mitigating method is simple, and allows you to eat as much as you please, so long as you are eating the healthy plant-based foods required.
