National Nutrition Month

Posted on March 27th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

It’s the end of March and I’m just now discovering that it has been National Nutrition Month. How did that not make it onto my calendar? ;) Did you know that? Okay, so occasions like this are obviously not big national events, but who says that they can’t be great excuses to make some positive changes in your lifestyle?

Even in these last few days of March, you can begin making some choices that, if you stick with them, could become habits for the remainder of the year and beyond. Here are just a few ideas of little choices you can make to improve the nutrition you and your family get on a daily basis.

1. Snacks. Choose fruit, nuts, and veggies instead of prepackaged foods for snacks. This is an easy one to do. Just pack some grapes, an apple, baby carrots, raisins, or cashews in your children’s lunch instead of that bag of chips or gummies. Do the same for yourself. When you are tempted to go the pantry for chips, crackers, or cookies, grab an apple instead.

2. Drinks. Stop drinking soda. Would you ever think to consume 9 teaspoons of sugar in just one sitting? Probably not. That’s what you’re doing every time you drink a can of soda. This may be a good time to stop. Does it sound impossible? Just begin cutting out one per week. If you only drink one a day, that’ll be easy. I know people who drink multiple cans/cups of soda each day. Replace it with water, juice, or better yet lemon water!

3. Green Veggies. Try to include green veggies somewhere in your meals each day. Throw some steamed spinach or broccoli into a smoothie. Make a kale salad. My latest favorite is brussels sprouts. Roast some of those and mix in a little garlic, parsley butter sauce and it’s easy to forget about anything else on the menu!

Thrifty Health Tip: 5 Reasons To Drink Lemon Water

Posted on March 26th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

It seems to be a fancy way to drink water when you’re out to eat. It seems like it’s a good thing to do because you vaguely remember hearing or reading that it’s good for something. But, you don’t do it every day. If you are like me, you’ve thought about adding lemon to your water and you’ve even done it when it’s convenient and you remember to do it. But, it has not been a regular part of your routine.

Well, in case you don’t remember why it’s so good to add lemon to your water, here’s a little list of reasons why it’s so good for us to do.

1. Digestion. Because lemon juice has a similar structure to our stomach’s juices, it aids digestion by helping flush out toxins from the digestive tract. It helps relieve indigestion and bloating and hydrates the colon.

2. Immunity. Lemon helps boost immunity because it is rich in vitamin C. The vitamin C in lemon also helps our bodies to absorb more iron, which also strengthens our immunity. Lemons also have both antibacterial and antiviral properties, to help fight off colds and flu. People who drink lemon water daily are actually less likely to get sick to begin with.

3. Energy. Lemon water (especially in first thing in the morning) gives an instant energy boost. Who can’t use that… at any time of the day?

4. Alkalize. Lemons are of the most alkalizing food sources available. Most of what Americans eat on the standard American diet, like processed foods, sugar, and white flour, make our bodies very acidic. Too much acidity can cause obesity, inflammation, and other more serious diseases. Lemon water is an easy, tasty way to prevent too much acidity.

5. Antioxidants. The antioxidants contained in lemons help alleviate the effects of aging and reduce the risk of several types of cancer. This alone is a great reason to start drinking lemon water every day!

Thrifty Tip: When To Go Shopping

Posted on March 25th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

shopping with text

As a thrifty shopper who may also be a couponer, grocery shopping is all but a mindless activity. So considering the day of the week and the times of the day that suit you best will help to alleviate any additional stressors on these weekly trips.

On what day should I do my shopping? If you are looking for specific advertised sales, you’ll need to consider going on the first day or two of the sale to make sure you get what you want. If the sale starts on the weekend, though, consider waiting for Monday to make your stop. Have you been to the grocery store on a Saturday or Sunday? It can be crazy! I avoid it whenever possible.

What time of the day is best for shopping? Because I have young children, I have gotten accustomed to shopping either early in the day or very late (once the rush hour crowds are long gone and tucking themselves in to bed). As my children have gotten a bit older, it’s not much of a challenge to take them with me. So, I’m not going shopping at 6am and 10pm anymore. However, I still tend to go no later than about 11am.

Other special days. I tend to avoid shopping on the day before a big holiday, like Easter or Christmas, because I can’t stand shopping with the masses. However, if you don’t mind, you can sometimes get some great deals on the day before a big day like that. I’ve heard about deals I’ve missed when I’ve gone into the store the day after a holiday. That said, I’ve also gotten amazing deals on gift and food items on the day after holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, figure out what deals you want, whether you can withstand the crowds, and get those deals.

When do you prefer to do your shopping?
