To eat healthy, really cost more, because the items that are supposed to be healthy are covered in chemicals. Organic products or local farmer products are no doubtedly worht the extra cost if you've got the extra money to spend, but if you dont, your stuck with the things that are less healthy or not healthy at all. Things like hamburger helper and canned goods can contain insane amounts of sodium. High fructose cornsyrup seems to make it's way through everything from bread, salad dressing, tea, cerial...it's everywhere.
We cant have better food in the super markets that is more affordable, and we cant have cheaper, better health care....
but we can have all the products that are culprits in causing obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Anyone have an ideas or opinions they would like to express on this issue?
sorry, I live in louisiana, i forget that there are accually other places that have like markets very close by. Where I live, it's a long drive to a farm and is pricey.Answer Question

You're doing it wrong. Normally, I'd pm you, but since you posted it anon I can't, so here's the link to my group if you'd like to read more about why it's not more expensive. You need to rethink the way you shop, eat, cook, and plan your meals, but it's absolutely cheaper to eat healthy than it ever is to buy the processed crap like hamburger helper and canned veggies. http://www.cafemom.com/group/111028
