There are lots of news reports talking about how expensive it is to eat healthy. But! You can shop at farmer's markets and shop the sales at your favorite grocery store. Buy fresh produce that's in season. I think buying regular ingredients and cooking at home is a lot cheaper than buying fast food or getting the mostly-prepared stuff at the grocery store. It does NOT have to be expensive to eat healthfully. Also, consider the cost of not eating healthy food - things like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc. Those are really expensive and even life-threatening.
