Cheap Healthy Food... Shop, Save Money, And Still Keep Healthy.

Cheap healthy food! In today's economy almost everyone is struggling to make ends meet. It goes as far as paying your mortgage to putting food on the table. For you who are health conscious like me know that some healthy foods are not cheap.

But are there cheap healthy food? Of course they are. When I think of healthier foods, I always think of foods that are organic instead of conventional.

Organic foods are expensive because they are naturally grown without chemicals, while conventional foods are grown using various types of chemicals and pesticides.

If you are strap for cash but still want to eat healthy you may want to avoid organic food stores.

Even in organic food stores they have conventional foods that are just as expensive, so organic food stores may not be a good choice at this time.

When my wife and I shop for food we normally go to organic stores, but now we go to local produce markets to buy our fruits and vegetables and other healthy food.

In my area, produce markets carry sales on Saturdays and Sundays and their health foods are cheaper than regular weekdays.

You can check for small produce markets in your area that sell their produce in bulk.... and most of them do.

I am going to share with you a list of cheap healthy foods and their nutritional content as an added benefit to you....and that you can buy without emptying your bank account.

It is important to know that all the above list of healthy foods are not organic but conventional.

We go the conventional way because its cheap healthy food and despite the fact that conventional foods are grown by using various types of chemicals to produce plant growth... whereas organic food grow naturally, this does not totally remove all nutritious content within conventional food.

All it means is that, when you buy conventional food, you have to wash most of them, especially the fruits and vegetables to get most of the chemicals off your food.

I usually wash my fruits with dish washing liquid:) but when I do this I make sure its wash thoroughly.

Do not be disturb by this, conventional foods are still considered as cheap healthy food and its a good way to save money and an alternative way to keep healthy.
