If I Had $200 To Spend On My Health, What Would I Buy?


Last night at a dinner party I was asked a terrific question:  "If you had $200 to spend your own health and wellness, what would you buy?" 

I love this question, because it – very simply – cuts to the chase.  It allows me to share with you what I value most in a health and wellness plan to help you look and feel your best!

So here is how I would spend my $200..........

I would start every day drinking two cups of water with lemon and an Energizing Green Drink   $2.26/day. 

(Note:  I already have a high powered blender!  If I didn't have a blender for my smoothies, I would buy that first.  Wow.....$200 goes fast)

Smoothie Ingredients that I buy every week:

  • Almond Milk $4.99 (or use water)
  • 1 12oz box spinach $2.49
  • 1 bunch kale $1.99
  • 1 bag frozen blueberries $6.40
  • 1 bunch of bananas $5.50
  • 1 bunch celery stalks $2.00
  • 4 honey crisp apples $4.00
  • 2 cucumbers $1.78
  • 4 - 6 lemons $2.50 for a 1 pound bag

(This is not exactly accurate because I also use various herbs, chia seeds, hemp seeds and coconut oil in my smoothie, but they last a long time, so I estimated)

Total = #31.64. $4.52 per batch or $2.26 per smoothie. 

I would get A Fitbit to track my daily steps and I would do "at home" strength and stretch routines.  The Fitbit Flex is $70.00, but the steps are free!

I always tell my clients "You don't have to join a gym to stay strong, slim and healthy!"  If my budget was too tight for a gym or fitness classes, I would get a basic pedometer and set a goal of 10,000 steps per day (that's about five miles.)  I would do my my strength training and stretching at home for 20 minutes.

I would take a high quality fish oil supplement   $30

If I was going to choose one supplement to take daily, it would be fish oil. Fish oil supplements are rich in the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are vital to good health. They support your body’s ability to prevent chronic diseases and help protect it against inflammation. They also promote a stronger immune system; they support cardiovascular, joint and vision health; they strengthen skin, hair, and nails. 

I would get a great face oil to moisturize my skin.  $68

I can not live without my favorite face oil from Beautycounter.I have to admit, I was skeptical before I first tried putting an oil directly on my face.  I wasn’t sure it would work well for me......I was wrong!  My skin has never looked more soft, radiant and "glowy". Lightweight and silky smooth, this blend of seven natural oils moisturizes, nourishes, and helps firm skin. Fragrant jasmine oil replenishes moisture, while omega-rich argan oil helps minimize the appearance of fine lines.
