Food Thats Cheaper At “Health” Stores & Ultimate Core Floor Slider Workout

by TaylorR

Happy President’s Day! If you’re one of the lucky ones off today, enjoy it! You get to bypass the “ugh” of Monday mornings.

Because I am a work-o-holic and never cancel boot camps, of course I was up nice and early! Not that I minded it because I LOVE my ladies!

But enough about that… let’s go straight into today’s Lifting Revolution’s Fitness & Nutrition Show:

On today’s show: 

-What foods are actually cheaper at health stores (I.e. Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Etc).

-The $5 piece of fitness equipment that can take your workout to the next level and make it fun!


Go To The Health Food Store

While we think that stores like Whole Foods and Earth Fare raise our grocery bill, there are a few exceptions. Because they focus on healthy and organic food, they are able to carry their own brands of certain items and offer sales on stuff not typically ever on sale at the run of the mill grocery store.

Here are the foods I have learned to pick up at Whole Foods to save some cash!

cheaper at whole foods

1. Milk

2. Yogurt

3. Hummus

4. Avocados

5. Ezekiel Bread

6. Bin Items (nuts, grains, beans, etc)

7. Apples

8. Specialty pastas (and often other gluten-free items)

I forgot to mention this one:

Baby spinach!

Step Up Your Workout By Sliding Around

Carpet sliders work to fire off more muscle fibers in the core, making you have to work harder for each rep.

Try the exercises above!

Other great moves include reverse lunges (the foot that goes back is on a slider, not the front leg); plank jacks; alligator walks.

See what else you can come up with! Have fun with them.

Are you off today? If so, what’s on the agenda?
Who is your favorite president? 

A few years ago I read Abe Lincoln’s biography (With Malice Towards None) and loved learning about good ole’ Honest Abe. I have a lot of respect for him, his passion for success, understanding of hard work and his desire to make a change. By far my favorite guy! And one of my all time favorite books.

Great video! I was thinking of stopping by WFs this week- will pick up a few of these! I don’t work Mondays (just teach at the gym), so I’m normally off ;)

Trader Joe’s for spinach!! They have huge bags of baby spinach for $1.99!!! :) I definitely stock up when I go because I eat spinach like someone might eat potato chips!

I definitely agree! I LOVE TJ’s produce, but I have had a lot of bags that are already a bit spoiled when I get home? Any tips?

Up until recently, I found Whole Foods’ 365 brand to be the cheapest option for peanut butter. They finally fell victim to the peanut shortage and everyone’s pricing for it!
