Sure there are pricey speciality health foods and supplements on the market such as spirulina and protein powders. One does not need to purchase these fancy products to eat a cleaner diet. Here’s my take on the cost of a healthy diet.
- There are several healthy foods that are very cheap. Organic kale can be purchased for less than $3/bunch especially if you go to a local farmer’s market. Even at Whole Foods it’s reasonably priced. A carton organic chickpeas costs $1.49 at whole foods. I have found bags of 12 organic apples for $6.
- The healthier options of some foods cost just a few dollars more than their processed and toxic versions. Is your long-term health not worth an extra $10-$20/month on your grocery bill? Think of it as an investment that will lessen your chances of spending big bucks on doctors’ bills and medications in the future.
- For the ladies: We are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for the latest designer handbag but not an extra couple of dollars on organic or whole foods? Think about what’s really important.
