For anyone that doesn't know, Wednesday is my favorite day of the week. This is due to the fact that it is DOUBLE AD WEDNESDAY at SPROUTS. For those that say healthy eating and living comes at a premium, I beg to differ.
Here are some examples of easy, inexpensive and healthy options for the week:
-Mountain High Yogurt (32oz container, $2.50) -1
-Granola (Sold in bulk, $2.99-3.99/#) ~1#
-Bananas ($.65-.75/#) -4
-Raisins (Sold in bulk, $1.99/#) ~1#
*Depending on amount consumed, yogurt, granola and raisins will last 1-2 weeks. I use about a half of a banana per day.
COST: ~$8.70, even if it only lasts a week, that's only $1.25 per meal.
-Greens (Romaine, Green or Red Leaf, $.98) -2
-Avocado ($.33) -3
-Chicken ($2.49/#) -2#
-Onion (~$.50/#) -1
*To make things easier, wash and chop onion and lettuce. Also, pre-cook chicken and chop up. Store separately and make 'fresh' each day. Pair with favorite dressing. I use roughly 1/2 avocado per serving.
COST: ~$8.50, less than $1.25 per meal.
For less than $20 you can have two meals a day for the entire week. With these kinds of savings you can buy $5 lobster tails (when on sale) and have a meal for a king at low prices.
