You want to do the paleo diet, but there’s a problem. The right groceries can get expensive! Don’t worry, that’s a genuine concern. It’s unfortunate, but in today’s modern world, eating healthy can cost a lot. But not to worry, you can still eat a healthy, paleo diet without breaking the bank. You just have to be a bit clever.
A big part of the paleo diet is fish and eggs. Both can be had fairly cheaply, if you know where to shop. Fish can run from cheap to expensive, but you can generally get cans of tuna for not a lot of money.
You can even make your own mayonnaise, and make yourself some tuna salad! It’s easy. Separate the yolks and the whites, then mix the yolks with a little bit of salad oil. Add the oil slowly as you mix, and keep mixing and adding until it’s thick. Doing this allows you to not only avoid the processed mayo you get in a jar, but helps you save money!
Those two things alone can make a world of difference if you’re using the paleo diet. With a combination of tuna, eggs, and homemade tuna salad, you could live for weeks on a tiny grocery budget with this Paleo Diet shopping list!…Read More
There are a wide variety of of factors that cause the skin to take on an older appearance. These include the sun, humidity and moisture (or lack thereof) in the air, allergens, a person’s genetics, and plain old time.

These creams also can include specialized additives and compounds which address specific problems. These special ingredients include retinol, epidermal growth factor, alpha hydroxy acids, coenzyme Q10, argireline, anti-oxidants, sunscreens, and vitamin C.
One overlooked benefit of anti-aging creams is their cost and ease of use to other alternatives to treating aging skin. The other options to treat the effects of getting older are far more expensive and, in a number of cases, more painful. Plastic surgery (such as eyebrow lifts and facelifts) are costly elective surgery not covered by insurance. The recovery from facial surgery can be very uncomfortable, too. While light chemical peels can be purchased over the counter and done at home without anesthetic, medium- or deep chemical peels may involve using painkillers for associated pain and can lead to scarring in the event of problems. Once these potential situations are realized, creams to reduce the effects of aging make a lot of sense to the consumer.…Read More
