I have learned that you should not buy junk food on food stamps, and you should opt for whatever is cheapest. You're on FS, no luxuries allowed, right? But I was thinking this is kind of contradicting in a way. Don't buy that name brand for more, pick the off brand because it's cheaper, but don't buy junk food on food stamps either. Ok, got it. So here's a few items I buy that are healthier, but cost more? What's a person on FS suppose to do? Lean/ extra lean hamburger meat. Healthier? Yes. More money? Yes. Whole wheat bread, whole wheat flour, tortillas, noodles/penne, whole wheat anything, more $$$ than enriched, but healthier. Case of bottled water. Ohhh nooo. FS people should only drink from the faucet!!! Better than a pack of Cola though, right? Turkey sausage, center cut bacon...Healthier options, but more money. Fresh vegetables are more pricey too. Orange juice. Quite pricey. Popcorn. Not the butter slathered kind. The 94% fat free kind packed with protein and generally healthy for you. The most natural peanut butter, more expensive. Whole grain waffles for breakfast. Healthier things, but all are more expensive, so which would you rather see? I am not on fs by the way, I was just thinking about this.
