Cheap Health Food: Is It Possible?
One of the common complaints about buying healthier foods is the expense.
For instance, it’s much cheaper to buy a loaf of white bread that is like soft cotton, than it is to buy the denser whole grain breads. And if you want to bake your own bread, white flour is cheaper than whole wheat flour.
Many processed foods are cheaper than their orginal, as they were grown counterparts.
And of course, it is generally cheaper to buy a bag of cheap cookies than fresh, wholesome fruit.
Add to that, the Sunday newspaper is full of coupons to buy processed products. So how do you find ways to help out your budget if you’re trying to buy health food, not junk food?
Don’t despair, there are options! Karen wrote a post on The Happy Housewife with ideas on how to save money when buying organic groceries.
