False Belief: "I can’t afford to be healthy."
I’ve talked to a lot of moms... In fact, the vast majority of my clients and social media followers are moms. I’ve spent a significant amount of time talking through all of the challenges and obstacles these Moms face in their day to day lives.
Obstacles and challenges that can make health & wellness a real challenge!
I’ve noticed a few recurring words in the countless e-mail exchanges I’ve had with these amazing women:
Why do these words keep popping up again and again?!
Because we’ve all been sold more lies!
We all think that being “healthy” means being “fancy.” Why?!
Because all of the “experts” spend so much time over complicating nutrition in an attempt to make themselves sound more sophisticated.
For the average person, the task of sorting through this never-ending database of information in an attempt to separate fact from fiction seems utterly impossible!
A great example is doing a simple search for the word “Paleo.” Go ahead and give it a try... What did you find?!
Let me guess, it looked a little something like this:
An article shared on Facebook explaining why Paleo is better than every other diet ever and it is the only way to be healthy.
A tweet about the trendy new “Paleo Superfood.”
A Pinterest board littered with insane recipes with 20+ obscure, organic ingredients and 2 hour prep times.
An Instagram featuring before and after pics of fitness models promoting some kind of “Paleo Challenge."
Tumblr pages featuring chiseled CrossFit athletes mid “snatch."
Countless ads for things like “Paleo Granola.” “But wait... It’s only 300% more expensive than plain, old, granola! Now that’s a deal!”
It’s enough to make a Monk want to scream!
But how does all of this non-sense really impact you?!
This constant reminder that other people can somehow live this complicated lifestyle with ease... and you can’t...
You start to believe it’s Your Fault!
It’s your fault you can’t afford to eat healthy
It’s your fault you aren’t healthy
It’s your fault that your kids are overweight and being made fun of.
It’s your fault that you don’t feel like spending all day in the kitchen.
This is all bullshit!
Newsflash... I know a lot of these online influencers personally and they aren’t perfect all of the time! No one is!
I’m here to make your life easier through simplicity!
Simplify your shopping list, simplify your food budget!
Myth: Buying healthy food is more expensive than buying junk food.
Fact: Buying healthy food is cheaper than buying junk food!
It’s not your fault that you think this way!! You’ve been programmed by masterful marketing companies!
I can teach you how to shorten your grocery trips and save money!
From the moment I started lifting weights, I believed that eating healthy was expensive. So, what would I do? I would buy the cheapest food possible and try to “burn it off” by working out even more!
We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Justifying poor food choices by promising to exercise more, right?
I would drive home from school, stop at Subway and pay them $1 for a foot long loaf of bread that I would eat by itself. Then I would go home and try to “burn it off.”
In college, I would spend 2 hours in a boxing gym and damn near kill myself so I could go home and justify eating microwavable pizzas and ramen noodles in my studio apartment in Boston!
And what was the result of all my hard work?! Feeling shitty and always carrying excess body fat! We all want to get rid of that damn body fat, don’t we?! But we think it’s too expensive to buy the foods that help get rid of the body fat!
What if I told you I could slash your grocery bill?
What if told you you could eat only healthy foods by spending less money at the grocery store than you do now? Sounds crazy, right?! But it’s true!
What if I told you could feed your entire family with health food for far less than you’re currently spending? That would be great right?
What if I told you I could help you cut the amount of time you spend in the grocery store in half? How does that sound? I bet you hate spending an hour in the grocery store, don’t you?
When I’m doing my shopping for the entire week... I’m in and out in less than 5 minutes.
Direct Quote from a Client...
“It’s amazing how ‘simple’ my fridge has become!... There is so much less stuff than there used to be but there are so many more options for meals!”
Do you want to simplify your life?
“What am I gonna feed the kids?!”
“Do I have all the ingredients I need for this insane 2 hour recipe from some food bloggers website that my sister forwarded me?!”
“Screw it. Maybe it will just be a Pizza night, or should it be a Subway night?” Right?!
Do you want to simplify your fridge, and your pantry, and your cupboards?
Do you want to spend less time in the grocery store? It’d be pretty great to stop wasting your time, right?
