Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters is a vegan who has changed his whole life by changing his diet, and he says that the first thing we need to do with food is stop making it a low priority. Maybe pass on buying the most expensive car or shoes so you can put healthier, chi-producing food in your body where it really matters.

If, though, you find yourself in an economic situation where you are prioritizing food and your budget is still very tight, Ralph suggests these tips:

(1) Buy Versatile 5-in-1 Foods

When you go shopping, ask yourself, what different kinds of uses can I get out of this? You should get at least five. Some great versatile foods are coconut oil that you can use for cooking or eating directly, moisturizing your skin, treating your hair, oil pulling and more. Ralph also recommends avocados because they can be eaten in a variety of ways, are a super healthy source of fat and can even condition the skin (as a mask). He likes limes too which can be put in hot water, used to flavor other dishes, and used on your face or for housecleaning.

(2) Eat In Rather Than Out

Rather than spend your budget on restaurants, spend it on really, good, fresh and organic ingredients and make many meals for the cost of one meal out.

(3) Buy Items That Last & Are Packed With Nutrition

Buy items that go a long way. Ralph gives the example of chia seeds. He spent about $20 on one bag, but only a tablespoon a day gives him great nutrition, and one bag lasts him for months.

Remember food is your greatest investment because it gives you (or takes from you, depending on how you eat) energy, health and longevity.
