You might be surprised how easily you can stretch your food budget.
6. Prepare ahead of time. You know the saying: Fail to plan, plan to fail.
Whether your goal is fast fat loss or getting a healthy meal on the table for your family, thinking ahead can save you time, money, and effort.
If you know you’ll be stuck late at work tomorrow, prep dinner ingredients and you’ll be far less tempted to hammer your wallet by ordering in or grabbing expensive ready meals. Many of my clients make Sunday and Wednesday “prep days” for the week ahead.

Here’s the thing: You can always earn more money, but you can’t put a price on your health. You can’t put a price on setting a healthy example for your kids.
Eat Clean. Train Hard. Feel Great
