Budget substitutes for expensive products for proper nutrition can help you not only to save money, but also to maintain health for many years.
There is a perception that proper nutrition can be followed only by those who can afford it, because healthy food consists of expensive and natural products, which contain only a full range of nutrients. But this opinion is wrong, because in the modern world you can always find a healthy alternative to expensive products. Dietician Albina Komissarova told about how to eat tasty, healthy and inexpensive food.
So, healthy food means dishes cooked from natural ingredients, which are sources of useful substances. This includes inexpensive products that will not only save money, but also diversify your daily diet.
Cereals Cereals are sources of all the vitamins and minerals the body needs, which is why they should be included in your menu when following a proper diet. When choosing high-quality and inexpensive cereals, still pay attention not to the famous among bloggers wild rice or quinoa, but to less popular whole grain cereals - bulgur, buckwheat, barley groats, oats, millet and spelt. They will help you save money and saturate your body with useful substances. According to the recommendations of the nutritionist, all the thinners and adherents of proper nutrition should focus on such products as bread from wallpaper flour (coarse grinding), as well as oat, barley and rye long-cooked cereals and, of course, bread.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Fish is known to be a product that is an excellent source of protein, as well as unsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, which have a beneficial effect on the entire body. To replace the low-fat and rather expensive red fish can be no less useful types. These include Atlantic herring, sardines, mackerel, rainbow trout, sea bass, plaice, sea bass, and seafood: mussels and squids.
Oil Consumption of different oils has a negative impact on our health. The fact is that this product can disrupt the circulatory system. To reduce the amount of sunflower oil harmful to health, it is necessary to replace it with a useful alternative. For frying, refined or animal oil is suitable, and for salads - unrefined.
Vegetables and Fruits The nutritionist also noted that an essential part of a healthy diet is vegetables, fruits and berries. Rich in fiber and vitamins, these foods are healthier and much cheaper in season, the expert said. One should not think that frozen vegetables and berries are not as healthy as fresh ones, on the contrary, they are also beneficial for health and, moreover, often cost much less than their fresh counterparts.
