#CulturePH - Living More, For All: Cultivating an Affordable Healthy Lifestyle in the Family

Because of the rising expense of living, the new generation of Filipino families is becoming more frugal. They now think it is far better to make everything economical, even their meals. Even if this is a more creative and sustainable option, some families compromise their overall diet in order to save money.

The National Nutrition Council (NNC) intends to convey that every Filipino family should have increased access to healthy, safe, and inexpensive food by observing this year's Nutrition Month under the theme "Healthy diet gawing affordable for all!" The topic also focuses improving the stability and sufficiency of food supplies for every home.

A healthy lifestyle shouldn't break the bank for the family. In order to promote this year's Nutrition Month campaign, Santé, a leading provider of natural health and wellness products and services, has provided a useful advice on how you and your family may live a healthy lifestyle on a budget.

Make wholesome meals at home with inexpensive products. 

Home-cooked meals are common in Filipino households, but if you need more time and resources, you might have to compromise on the meal you prepare. Fried, processed food (such hotdogs, longganisa, tocino, noodles, etc.) and canned items are acceptable to cook. However, you may always cook meals that are more easily available, less expensive, and healthier. Start by experimenting with inexpensive, healthy recipes like stir-fried ginisang ampalaya, stir-fried tofu with eggplant, tinolang isda, monggo with malunggay, and more.

Shop smarter and healthier. 

The local wet and dry market will be your best friend if you want your family to keep things on a budget. You can buy everything in bulk and get enough fresh produce to sustain your family for at least two weeks. Stop buying frozen goods and opt for whole foods such as grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables, which are usually affordable and nutritious.

Regarding grocery shopping, look for promos and discounts and buy generic brands to stretch your budget further. Consider buying in bulk for non-perishable items like grains, nuts, and seeds.

Invest in and explore health and wellness resources. 

Nutrition doesn't always come from food; it also comes from the vitamins and nutrients you and your family can take. Always make sure that you set aside a budget to sustain your family's daily vitamins. And don’t forget to go for generics.

You can also substitute other daily drinks with healthier ones. 

For instance, Santé offers a variety of healthy drinks, such as Santé Fusion Coffee, which can boost your family's energy while providing fiber and protein. There's also Santé Choco Barley for the kids to enjoy because it's a sweet treat packed with vitamins such as A and C. And for dads, Santé Boost Coffee can improve their physical performance and is full of antioxidants because it contains Tongkat Ali.

All of these consist of Santé Barley Grass, certified organic by BioGro. That is why you'll never doubt the nutrients and vitamins these products can give to your family.

Exercise as a family. Exercise doesn't have to come with a hefty price tag. Look for free activities such as walking, biking, hiking, or playing in local parks. Explore workout videos or apps that offer home-based exercises without requiring expensive gym memberships or equipment. And allow your kids to play outside after school or after finishing their homework.

Remember, health and wellness should start within the family. It should be a collective effort to make everyone live healthier lives, but that does not mean it should be expensive and burdensome. 

"We believe that the journey towards a healthy lifestyle is continuous. When families start nurturing a culture of wellness, they are investing in the present and laying the foundation for a future filled with vitality and joy," said Joey Marcelo, chief executive officer of Santé.

Santé is one of the leading global manufacturers of products with organic barley grass (certified organic by BioGro) grown and harvested in New Zealand. With its mission to help people live better lives, the company promotes, produces, and distributes premier natural health and wellness products and services. Santé reminds everyone only to buy Santé products from legitimate business owners and resellers and to report counterfeits.
