To save on food check out Angel Food. It is a program where you pay $ 25 a few weeks before you get $ 50 – 75 bucks worth of food. There are no income restrictions and all types and incomes of people do it. My husband and I get the food sometimes to restock our freezer.

Cleaning ideas – I have heard that vinegar and water clean as good as anything. At least that is what my grandmother does.
Good luck and good for you for being proactive!

Healthy Living?

Question by fox_maple: Healthy Living?
My husband and I are really clashing in our views about health. I’m almost 27 and I’ve come to a point in my life when I’m thinking about the future. I don’t want to keel over from a heart attack at 50 and I don’t want my husband to either. I was raised with a good diet and I like to eat healthy, but my husband only likes red meat, potatoes, and bread. Thus far in our marriage I’ve adjusted my cooking to please him, but I’m literally sick of it…eating like that sucks away all my energy. In the past we have also smoked (only on the weekends…but still) and drank too much. I want to make changes but he just won’t. He wont eat my healthier cooking (he just goes out and buys chips, and fried carry-out), he keeps coming home with cigarettes and refuses to even take a freaking vitamin. What am I going to do? I can’t live like this, and he shouldn’t. His dad is 55, diabetic, and has heart disease.
p.s. its not like he is ignorant to the risks of his lifestyle either….he just doesn’t care.

I understand your concerns but I think you’re going about it the wrong way. You’re not going to convince a man he needs to change what he eats and does becasue you feel that way or say he should. You should eat like you want to and let him do the same. He is a grown man and has the right to make that decision. I’m sure he likes being told what he should be eating and doing about as much as you would like him telling you to eat like he does. Just understand you are two different people and have different ideas. If he sees how healthy you are eating, he may change his idea on things becasue he wants to but definitely not becasue you are telling him too and fussing about it. Goodluck.
