Healthy Ones Lunchmeat Can Save Your Family Money!

12:56 PM


We all know that packing a lunch can save money... but were you aware of how much? Packing a healthy lunch daily (instead of dining out) can save the average family of four up to $3,500 per year!*

Healthy Ones is a leading brand from Armour-Eckrich Meats, and the offerings come in so many flavors! We think the Roast Beef, Smoked Turkey Breast, and Mesquite Turkey Breast sound the best, but there are over 10 unique flavors to choose from.

Kathy Kaehler, celebrity trainer and former NBC TODAY Show fitness correspondent, is a mom of 3 pre-teen boys, and also shares ways to save time and calories by using the low-fat, American Heart Association-certified lunchmeat line from Healthy Ones. Do you think your family could get healthier and save money, too?

If so, please leave your comments here on this post, telling us your thoughts. We'll pick a winner to get a Healthy Ones Prize pack, with coupons for free lunchmeat and a convenient insulated and eco-friendly BuiltNY lunch bag. The prize is valued at a total of $30! You have until next Thursday, April 16th at 10pm CST to get your entries in. Giveaway is subject to complete site rules. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck!

  4. yes i know we all could get healthier- just have to get the alternatives and sometimes convenience food or the fattier food is half the cost in the store- just have to mind associate it with health

  5. We eat a lot of lunch meat so this would come in handy.

  6. I don't think we could be any healthier (none of the five of us ever get sick), but we could certainly save some money. We eat quite a bit of lunch meat around here, and I am always wanting to try something new.

  9. I already use Healthy Ones Lunch meat for sandwiches. I save even more by buying it on sale and freezing it when it goes on sale. As a matter of fact my whole family also enjoys their kielbasa; I just defrosted some for dinner tonight.

  17. i love to save money, and eat healthy. it is hard to do. when u grocery shop and to eat healthy it cost a ton. but to get a mcdonalds hamburger its like .99 cents.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is definitely possible to eat healthier & save money. Snack/junk foods are getting more & more pricey. It's better to stick with buying a bag of apples & having one as a snack daily instead of a bag of potato chips that cost $2 at Subway!

  19. I haven't tried Healthy Ones lunch meats yet, but now I think I should.

  20. It's funny before the recession everyone at work would chide me for 'brown bagging it' every day. The same ones would also say 'gee what smells so good' when I'd bring my lunch from the microwave to my desk! Now we are in a recession and everyone is scrambling for new ideas to save money. Some folks act like they discovered 'brown bagging' all by themselves, LOL I've been doing it for YEARS. You also don't get sick as often because you are eating food that you know is prepared well unlike many fast food restaurants where you see someone cough into their hand and then prepare your hamburger!

  22. I totally agree. It is possilbe to eat heathly and save money. My family has been doing it for years.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, I believe so. We brown bag it now after realizing just how much lunch was costing us each day. In addition, I do believe that there are much healthier options available if you make your own lunch.
    Thanks so much.

  24. My husband has started taking his lunch to work. He used to spend waya too much money each week, and did not always have a healthy meal. Thanks for this healthy giveaway.

  25. We definitely could save money. We buy our fruits and vegetables from two local Mom & Pop produce stores; since they're three blocks from each other we can easily price check. We find their prices much lower than supermarkets.

    As far as eating healthier, we pretty much are doing that now but we are always learning about new ways.

    Thanks for the contest.

  28. I'm really trying to get better about packing my husband's lunch. I know he spends at least $5 every day he goes out. My kids do pack their lunch. Even at $2.50 a lunch, I can pack it much cheaper and healthier.

  35. I try to save where ever I can. Bag lunches are the way to go and I know what's in them- not like buying one out. I'd LOVE to win this.

  36. Packing a healthy lunch daily is a goal that can be made

  37. I tried these meats and was pleasantly surprised!

  38. It's kind of like the "cool" thing for my boyfriend to have lunch with his co-workers everyday, picking which fast food restaurant they'll order from everyday... but those meals add up! I asked him to let me cook his lunches for a week (since he cooks our dinners) and he was amazed at how far I could make our dollar spend, after buying a big bag o'chicken from Sam's Club with a side of veggies from there as well... He was impressed, and I think it will stick. And it looks like he's up for finding other ways of eating healthier for less -- he can eat with his co-workers, but that doesn't mean he has to eat WHAT they are eating!

    ReplyDelete
  39. We have been taking lunches for years now. It sure does make a big difference!

    ReplyDelete
  40. All the money we save by doing our own lunches goes directly into our "travel fund" and needless to say, we travel alot!!!!

  64. I had no idea I could save that much money but I always knew it was much less expensive to pack a lunch. I have recently discovered that I am losing weight because I am packing healthier food.

  65. We absolutely could get healthier and save money too! Hubby and I work together and there are not really any decent places to eat. It is either fast food or too expensive for our tastes. I try to bring lunch when I can but it isn't always easy to pack something quickly. Healthy Ones could really give me a hand.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Eating out has become so expensive and a lot of times you don't know the preparation that goes into the meal so it is easier to eat healthier when taking your own lunch.

    counter as gone up,I have been
    buying more pre packaged cold cuts
    and Healthy Ones is one of my favorite of them.I love that it is 97% fat free and there are some nice recipes on their website.
