How to Eat Healthy on a Budget
It’s no secret that fast food and other pre-packaged and highly processed meals are both convenient and cheap. But what are the hidden costs?
Compare the price of these foods to the cost of doctor bills and medications associated with diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Some people have genetic and hereditary conditions that cause medical complications. But for a lot of us, health problems like these may be avoidable with a few changes in the way we eat.
Eating healthy food when you live paycheck to paycheck can be tough, for sure. Take a walk through your local grocery store and it’s easy to see why many people choose more processed foods to stock the pantry. The cost comparison is no joke! But with a little planning and food budgeting, you can start implementing healthier choices into your normal shopping trips.
