Today, people more than ever, are switching to healthier alternatives for food. People are shopping for organic foods, as they are known to be healthier, as they are grown without the use of any chemicals, pesticdes and insecticides. However, they are also the more expensive alternative.

We offer you a few tips that can help you save some money while you are making your switch from an unhealthy to a healthy lifestyle.

Buy ingredients in bulk!
Instead of choosing to buy organic ingrdients in small quantities, make a commitment to this new way of life, by purchasing your ingreients in bulk. When you do so, you will be in a position to save money. Instead of walking down the aisles of expensive supermarkets in your neighbourhood, do some research and learn where you could find the ingredients you need at wholesale prices.

Grow your own!
You could choose to convert a small portion of your home in to an organic garden. Growing herbs and sprouting for instance, does not require a lot of space and is not an expensive affair at all. All you need is some small containers, and a window sill that gets ample sunlight.

Find affordable food retailers
The category is growing, and there are a number of food retailers out there who will offer you organic foods at prices that are lower than the more popular ones.

Take a trip to the farmer’s market
Farmer’s markets are organized on a regular basis, so make sure when they happen and make sure that you visit them regularly as well. Stock up and you can last on your organic supply for a long time without worrying about spending any extra money on organic produce.
There you have it, simply spend some time to understand how you can save money and live healthy, and you will be able to find the perfect balance. You should get in touch with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist or speak with a Homeopath to learn how organic food can indeed play a great role in keeping you and your family in the pink of health.
