    I've recently changed my diet over to a diet filled with fruits and vegetables and have found the truth about costs to be interesting. If you are trying to hold on to eating all of your old favorite foods, foods that are not good for you, then eating healthy foods on top of that is expensive. But if you make the change to a healthy diet filled with fruits and vegetables and minus all of the bad stuff it really is not more expensive. I have found that by eating the right foods I am eating less food and still feeling full and satisfied. My food bill has not increased much if at all. Te benefits from the cost savings side of healthy eating have off set the supposedly more expensive food also.

    Healthy eating can be done on the same budget and the poor can afford it if we can have a change in our thinking. Like most problems the real challenge exists between our own ears.
