The best $10 I spend each week at the grocery is for a loaf of gluten free bread/raisin bread and a bag of avocados. Use half an avocado on a piece of toast and top with a little pink salt and red pepper flakes, if desired. This yields at least 8 meals or snacks - that's $1.25 each! It's the fastest, cheapest and healthiest breakfast out there.
Why avocado for breakfast? According to Dr. Axe, avocados make a filling addition to any meal or snack, while providing nutritious heart-healthy fats, about half your day’s fiber, folate, vitamin A, potassium and more. It's packed full of essential nutrients, avocado benefits include improved heart health, hormone balance, better digestive health and so much more.

No doubt you've dieted or are on a diet right now. We all have! The thing about diets is that you and me, we are not a diet, we are real people living real lives. We do not fit in someone else's bubble of what may work for their body, we are not meant to fit there. So stop the diet roller coasters and start deciding to eat real food.
What is REAL FOOD? One of my fave real food authors is Michael Pollan. He says, "If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't." So simple! Eat real foods like broccoli and bananas. Don't eat processed chemical cocktails like soda and cereal. Now, I am a realist and know you cannot always have and don't always want fresh produce. Next step, read labels! If you cannot pronounce more than three ingredients, don't buy it. Don't even bring it home where you and your family will be tempted to eat it.
Chemical addiction is real, and it's not just in illegal drugs...it's in our food. Big agriculture is not out to keep you healthy, it's out to make a profit - unfortunately, it's at your demise. Recognize it, accept it, and choose not to support it. You will feel and look better once you choose to add in real food. Your body will thank you, I guarantee!
