How you save money when owning a dehydrator!
Reduce food waste
Excess food? You no longer need to throw it away. You can preserve it by dehydrating it and save on money spent on buying the food.
Grocery shops tend to offer special discounts on bulk orders. A dehydrator allows you to preserve excess food affording you the opportunity to buy in bulk cutting down your grocery bill in the long run.
- Spend less on herbs and spices
Buying pre-dried and packed herbs can be pricey. You can grow your own herbs and spices (and you are not limited to variations available in store) and dry them at a minimum cost.
- Encourages you to eat healthier
You would be surprised that certain fruits and vegetables that you normally do not eat taste amazing once dried. The flavour combined with a different texture take your taste buds on a different adventure. You consume more healthy variety.
- Maybe even go raw
Who came up with the idea that our food should be cooked? Raw food retains all the nutrients and enzymes that are lost when the food is cooked. Plus with a dehydrator you can still enjoy crunchy and tasty food while skipping the preservatives, colourants and additives found in processed foods.
- Camp savings Camping is fun but finding the right food at an affordable price often proves to be a nightmare. With a dehydrator, this does not have to be the case. You can make biltong, dehydrated soup packs, dried fruit and much more and you don’t have to pay the atrocious prices for these things at local camping stores.
- No more junk
Candy and other sweets tend to be expensive but some of us have a sweet tooth that we just can’t ignore. Dried fruit is an affordable (and healthy) alternative that you can take advantage of, if you have a food dehydrator.
Why a dehydrator?
- Less kitchen appliances
When you have a food dehydrator, you realize that you don’t really need a lot of the appliances you had before hand or you do not have as much use for them as before. What easier way is there to make money than to sell the items that you no longer need.
- Homemade gifts
We love showing our loved ones just how much we love them by buying gifts. With a dehydrator you can make creative (sometime edible) gifts and save.
- Less money on electricity bills
Running an electric food dehydrator is cheaper than running other appliances in the home.
- Less visits to the doctor
It’s really easy to maintain a healthy diet when you have a food dehydrator that you use regularly. Eating healthier means you are also healthier so you do not need to see the doctor as often.
- Life made simple.
Preparing your own food tends to simplify your life. You are more involved in the rituals involved in preparing the food so your energy is focused on things that matter and are productive.
Lets make money!
- Make and sell
Your dehydrator can practically pay for itself if you plan well. Dehydrated foods are such a welcome change to over processed foods commonly found. So why not sell what you make and create your own business? It’s a smart way to raise money! Remember, cheap is not always best.
