You Can Eat Healthy Without Spending More!

Chef: Libby Wright

One of the big myths we like to dispel is to talk about the real cost of foods. Most people believe that eating healthy is a lot more expensive than eating processed. The truth is, they cost about the same. Try this experiment and see for yourself!

I've done this demonstration several times, and without fail (and without calculator) they seem to come to about the same amount. I try and keep it as realistic as possible, buying some things on sale and some not, and buying some things name brand and others off brand.

So here's what I bought for each family for one day's supply of meals:

Comparison of Grocery Shopping Items: Unhealthy vs Healthy
Family Meal   Unhealthy Processed Food   Healthy Live Food
Breakfast Pancakes and Syrup with Sausage Steel Cut Oats with Banana
Lunch Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup and Chips Mixed Green Salad with Feta Cheese, Strawberries and Almonds and Gluten Free Crackers
Dinner Hamburger with Tomato and Bun, Fries, Peas, and Cola Grilled Angus Steak, Green Beans, and Sweet Potatoes
Snack Rainbow Chip Cookies Dark Chocolate Bar

And the answer is... they are within one dollar of each other!

Who says eating healthy costs more? You can eat healthy and still be on a budget. By buying on sale you rotate your diet and keep your budget in tact.

Try the experiment for yourself and see what you come up and with and share your results in our Discussion Forum!
