In today’s world, time is becoming a rare commodity. We all live busy lives. In between work, family, and extracurricular activities, many of us find going grocery shopping and cooking good meals on the bottom of the to-do list. This means settling for drive-thru, ordering in, or grabbing quick but not-so-healthy meals at the store. This isn’t good for your wallet or waistline. So let’s debunk a few myths about eating healthy:

  • You don’t have to play hide-and-seek to get healthy food. You don’t have to go to gourmet stores. You can find healthy food in your supermarket. All you have to do is look on the outside aisles.

  • You don’t have to spend hours slaving over a hot stove to cook healthy. Once you know how to cook in a healthy way, you’ll find it doesn’t take much time at all.

  • With a little shopping savvy and some preparation, you won’t be driving from store to store looking for obsolete items.

A bit of planning can radically shorten your time shopping.

  • For one week, keep a journal. Keep track of how much time and money you spend at the store, and at coffee shops, fast food places, restaurants, getting takeout, and ordering in. Also keep track of how you spend your day. How much time do you spend watching TV, using social media, reading books, magazines, and the paper? Once you know where your time is going, you can then see where you can reschedule some of that time for shopping and cooking.

  • Make a shopping list. Don’t stray off the list. By staying on point, you save money and time.
