*Thank you BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend brands I truly love.
You know the saying ‘new year new me’, right? It’s 2019. It’s a fresh new year. It’s time to tackle those positive life changes.
This was the attitude I had a few years ago. I wanted to start off the year with a complete overhaul with how we were eating to implement more positive life choices when it came to food into my life. Just a few days into it and my third trip to the grocery store I realized something that hadn’t hit me before: healthy life choices can be very expensive. And then a few days later I gave up.
So this year when I sat down to think about making healthy changes for the new year I really focused on how we could do it for our whole family and in a sustainable manner, as saving money is another focus of ours in 2019. Thankfully we have a BJ’s Wholesale Club membership and I decided to check out what options they had for us for healthy food and habits and whether we could realistically afford it or not.
After a shopping trip at BJ’s, I was able to cover our needs for a healthier start to the year and it’s incredibly affordable! Instead of cookies or chips we’ve been making bowls of Wellsley Farms carrots and apples for the kids (and us!) – and as I find myself eating on the go (and getting way too much fast food) I’ve been making smoothies with Wellsley Farms frozen strawberries and Super Greens to drink for a quick pick me up and to fill me up between meals. For dinner we’ve been trying different things but one that was a hit was the Wellsley Farms Organic Butternut Squash Ravioli for which I made a butter sauce and added in some of the Wellsley Farms Super Greens.
Another way I wanted to give us a more active lifestyle was to have everyone in our family start taking a vitamin daily. Of course vitamins can also be very expensive so I was seriously shocked to see the awesome price that BJ’s had their brand Berkley Jensen vitamins for!
So this year why not tackle multiple goals at once this year with BJ’s Wholesale Club? Spend less, live healthier, and in turn hopefully that leads to a sustainable lifestyle change that lasts for 2019 and beyond!
