If you really look it is not that expensive.
I just spent about 15 bucks on enough food for about 6 suppers.
Yes it is eating the same thing 2 nights in a row but it is still healthy .
I even managed to find at VONS a 10 lbs bag of potats for 99 cents.
I looked al over VONS and got this stuff.
Safeway pasta sauce 1.99
safeway pinto beans 1.59 (1 lbs)
Safeway elbow mac 1.25
Oven joy wheat bread .99
Hillshire farm kielbasa 2 for 4.79
bell pepper 1.23
head of cabbage 1.54
and the 10 lbs bag of potatos .99
totaling at 14.37
I made gouloush ( had at home 1 lbs of meat and 1 onion) with potatos
Tonight is cabbage and keilbasa ( have cron bread mix at home) also having potatos
Night after tomorrow We will have pinto beans and corn bread.
6 nights of supper for 15 bucks.
Why do people say it is hard to eat healthy then when we eat healthy all the time and have very little extra

The good thing about most healthy food is you can grow it yourself for next to nothing when compared to buying it. With square foot gardening and pots there really is no reason why everybody shouldnt be growing something. Making bread homemade even with organic products is still cheaper then buying it from the store. IMO the problem is not expense as much as it is trying to be fast. I can make spaghetti sauce for almost free with the ingredients in my garden, same with salsa, veggie stew, and veggie soup. These are whole meals for nothing. We spend money mostly on rice, beans, milk, cheese, and good organic/natural meat. We get by on very little money every month spent at the store on food just by having a garden and cooking from scratch.
