Last week I talked about two of the biggest concerns many people have with making the switch to real food. I hope you found my ideas and tips helpful and encouraging to you!
So let’s move on to the next biggest issue that I hear quite often.
It’s too expensive.
Y’all, I get it. That was 100% me a year ago.
Compared to the easily accessed pre-packaged food, the healthier stuff does seem more expensive sometimes. But I promise you, that in the long run, it’s really not.
If you’re like I was, then you have a ton of reasons why it just doesn’t make sense for you to cut out processed foods.
I’ve heard it all. I’ve said them all. I was so resilient to the idea of changing something so drastic, that I literally did everything I could…made every excuse I could make, to keep from having to do it. I knew for a long time, that our family needed to change the way we ate. Even several years ago, I still thought some of the processed food I was feeding my kids was healthy. Because the box or package it came in, said so.
It is my hope in this blog series, that you will gain some knowledge into why you should make the change, as well as how to go about doing it. It shouldn’t be a huge stressor, a bank breaker, or a time sucker. Will you find yourself spending a little more time than usual in your kitchen? Absolutely. But please don’t believe the lie that you will be spending every waking minute in the kitchen and grocery stores.
In this first post, I want to address the TWO most common issues I hear, in regards to why people don’t feel they can make the switch.
