Cost Of Clean Eating Is $1.50

Cost Of Clean Eating Is $1.50 The cost of eating a balanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and lean cuts of meat exceeds what you'd pay for processed foods by about $1.50 per day according to a study published in the journal BMJ Open.

Looked at one way, that's $42 a week or $550 a year. But if you take a population of 200 million people and multiply that by $550, the result is greater than the entire U.S. annual budget for food assistance programs.

True Strength Moment: While families on tight budgets might struggle to put healthy meals on the table, focusing on inexpensive nutrient-rich choices like beans, bananas, yogurt, almonds, eggs and cans of tuna, can help you cut some corners to make meal time cleaner and leaner.
