Eat Healthy On A Tight Budget

As Americans look for ways to save money, experts at the American Dietetic Association want to debunk the myth that it costs more to eat healthy.

Experts discovered, through a study, from the U.S. Agricultural Department finds that it is possible to meet the dietary recommendations for fruit and vegetables for under $2.50 a day. Experts believe it is easy to cut the costs if you just buy produce that's in season and locally grown. Buying frozen vegetables can also save money by lowering the chance that they will go bad before you eat them.  

Other ways to reduce food costs, is to take your lunch to work, buy store brands, buy whole chickens instead of pre cut pieces, and always follow a grocery list when you go to the store.
