Found Health Wealth and Time in a Grocery Bag by Sheryl Rothert

Book Review - 

Books about health and nutrition have become an essential part of my life, especially after contracting COVID-19 three times. The pandemic has driven home the importance of understanding gut health, proper nutrition, and the necessity of mindful eating habits. In this journey towards better health, I was particularly drawn to Sheryl Rothert's Found Health Wealth and Time in a Grocery Bag.

What sets this book apart from others I've read is its unique focus on the intersection of financial savings and healthy living. The author emphasizes the importance of strategic grocery shopping, advocating for the use of shopping lists and choosing specific days to make purchases. She explains how shopping without a list often leads to impulsive purchases, resulting in wasted food and unnecessary expenses. This practical advice resonated with me as it addresses a common problem many of us face. 

Sheryl Rothert provides readers with a comprehensive guide on how to save money, eat healthily, and invest those savings for future benefits. This concept struck a chord with me, especially since I have witnessed similar practices in Indian households. Women often save money from daily expenses and use it during financial crises, sometimes without anyone in the family realizing how they managed it. The author elevates this idea by explaining how to effectively compound these savings, transforming small, everyday economies into significant long-term financial advantages.

The book isn't just about financial strategies, it also includes an array of delicious recipes, monthly meal plans, and sample grocery checklists designed to simplify meal preparation. The author discusses the importance of proper food storage and the use of appropriate kitchen appliances to maximize savings and reduce waste. These practical tips are invaluable for anyone looking to streamline their grocery shopping and cooking routines. 

Being Canadian, Sheryl Rothert tailors her advice to align with the Canadian Food Guide (CFG) and provides a list of websites where readers can find grocery coupons. This is a particularly valuable resource for Canadian readers, offering tangible ways to save money. However, the book's focus on non-vegetarian recipes might be a drawback for vegetarians and vegans, as it limits the direct applicability of some meal plans and recipes. 

One of the most enlightening parts of the book for me was the introduction to Albert Einstein's Rule of 72. As someone with an interest in finance, I found it fascinating to see how the author integrated financial wisdom into a health book. This unique combination of health and financial advice provides a holistic approach to well-being, emphasizing that good health and sound finances are not mutually exclusive but can complement each other.

Overall, it is a highly recommended read. The author's practical tips, insightful strategies, and comprehensive approach make it an invaluable resource for anyone looking to improve their health while also being financially savvy. The book offers a blueprint for achieving a balanced lifestyle where health and wealth go hand in hand, ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future.
