Welcome to Isaac’s blog about how to take care of your body with good and tasty food on a budget. Have an excuse for not eating healthy food because you aren’t able to afford it? Not any more!
On this blog you will find a variety of tips and tricks from me – someone who has studied nutrition and is interested in optimizing well-being. I believe though that food should ultimately be a tool to serve us in our higher pursuits; in other words, we should eat to live, not live to eat.
As a college student, I try to find a healthy balance between caring for my well-being while also finding ways to “cheat” and eat well without overspending. However, while it may cost slightly more now to be be cognizant of your eating habits, the long term “return on investment” of taking care of your body will be exponentially paid back in avoided diseases, pain, and health care bills in the future. If we are all able to find little ways to improve our food intake on a budget with limited time we will be maximizing our potential and being smart about the way we eat.
The philosophy of “eating smart” will be the pivotal theme of this page. Eating smart means to eat properly, giving the body the necessary high quality foods it needs, while also being sane and eating simply, so that we can focus on more important areas of our life. While some of the suggestions taken from my life will be more expensive (money and time-wise) than “eating top ramen while doing homework”, the long-term lifestyle benefits I believe will make you vastly richer in the areas of physical, mental, and financial health.
