How To: Eat Healthy On A Budget
  • Plan your meals and write a shopping list - as the saying goes fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Plan your meals in advance and write a list of everything you need before you shop. This can work well when online shopping as you're less likely to buy things on a whim because you see they're on offer on the shelves
  • Try #MeatlessMondays - meat tends to be the most expensive element of a meal. Try going veggie once a week, check out these protein packed vegetarian recipes
  • Use leftovers - make extra for your evening meals and use your leftovers for lunches 
  • Be less wasteful - try not to throw away food, leftover veg at the bottom of the fridge can make great soups and casseroles
  • Get cheap with your cuts - cheaper cuts of meat doesn't mean compromising on flavour! They just need a little more love, so dust off the slow cooker and cook them low and slow for a tasty dinner.

After 3 years of excess at uni took a serious toll on my waistline and wellbeing, I found that a love for strength training, HIIT and spin classes were key to keeping me healthy and happy. I'm at the forefront of finding out and creating awesome stuff about health, fitness and happiness for our Movers and when I'm not at work I love nothing more than pizza and prosecco in the sun with friends. What motivates me? Knowing that life is short...

Get more happiness
in your life.
