Eating Healthy is Affordable!

A typical family using the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the official name for food stamps, will have about $3.37 per person, per day, with which to buy food.

People on tight budgets tend to opt for the cheapest, most filling foods, such as white bread, factory-farmed ground beef, and ramen noodles, which are detrimental to your health.

New research found the difference between buying food for the most healthy diet pattern or the least healthy diet pattern came out to about $1.50 per day. The extra investment will yield great returns for your family’s health, and is very small in comparison to the economic costs of diet-related chronic diseases.

Bone broth, fermented vegetables, and sprouts are examples of inexpensive foods that are phenomenal for your health. Doctor Mercola Newsletter 1-5-15
