Eating for Your Health

Stay Healthy and Not Break the Bank this Holiday Season!

From Lauren Hogan, RDN

With the holiday season approaching, more grocery shopping is needed for family get-togethers, dinner potlucks, and holiday parties! However, with the rising costs of inflation, the cost of the foods in our grocery stores have unfortunately risen, too.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, eggs have gone up 40% in price, butter is up 24%, and milk is up 17%. In addition to the economic burden, inflation also affects our nutrition.

With the rising cost of foods, people generally buy less expensive foods which oftentimes means foods with less nutritional value.

But by following these simple guidelines, you can eat healthy foods during the holidays and feel good about your wallet savings!

·      Choose Frozen Produce

·      Avoid Highly Processed Meats

·      Choose Generic Brands Rather than Name-Brands



If you're looking for Nutritional support, Lauren is here to HELP!  Contact me to get started! Her services are FREE to you and your spouse!

Your Good Mental Health Space 

There’s something about a holiday that isn’t all about how much money you spend - H. Burton


The holiday season is one of giving, which often means it can easily become the season of spending too.

To help take the stress out of the holiday season, consider creating and sticking to a holiday spending plan. It’ll help lessen your stress and keep you from overspending; potentially racking up debt this holiday season.

  • List out your holiday expenses
  • Decide on your spending limit & allocate an amount to each category
  • Track your expenses to stay on target

By using this these steps, you’ll be able to make the most of your holidays!
