From organic foods to Whole Foods (or “Whole Wallet”), many healthy foods empty your pockets. In fact, recent research shows just how much eating well could cost you.
According to a study out of University of Washington, incorporating the recommended amount of potassium could add $380 each year to the average American’s food costs.
But don’t let that scare you. It's completely possible to eat healthy on a budget—seriously!
“Don't make rising food prices an excuse not to eat healthy. Filling your body with healthy food options today will mean fewer medical bills tomorrow. You can do it all for less than $5 a day!”
Kristin Kirkpatrick, R.D., YouBeauty Nutrition Expert, put together a budget to eat healthy for just $36 a week (that’s about $1.70 per meal and $5 per day)! With a little planning, you can do this too.
