It doesn’t matter what kind of diet you are on, calories in calories out matters a LOT. So make these 3 changes:

  1. Don’t eat in car or while walking.
  2. If its not worth eating, don’t eat it.
  3. Avoid panic eating.

30 minutes activity and then plan, shop, & prepare.

Let’s save some money using Kardena Pauza’s 6 grocery shopping tips.

1) Eat meat less

2) Avoid pre-packaged stuff (I tend to buy prepared pineapple rather than buying a whole fruit…but no more!)

3) Buy local – farmer’s markets – love to hear your finds – do you have a farmer’s market near you?

4) Buy in season

5) Make your own salad dressing – Instead of buying and paying for expensive salad dressings, use lemon, honey, salt and herbs on your salad for a zesty dressing.

6) Costco – You can save money on foods like organic greens at Costco!

Amazing! Thanks Kardena.
