I have been thinking about the cost of health. I've always thought that eating healthy cost a lot of money. Lately it seems even more so. It's been a while back but the store had peaches. They looked so good. They were $3.98 a pound. How can you buy fresh when it cost so much. I guess you then have to weigh it against the cost of medical problems if your not at good health. Why can't it all just be so simple.
I have a nephew with a journey to health blog, also. He reminded me that we buy healthier if we shop the outside of the store. What a good reminder.
I went and got a Bountiful Basket today. If you haven't heard about this program you can go to their blog, www.bountifulbaskets.org. So for $15 this is what I brought home.
2 heads of broccoli 1 carton of strawberries
bag of grapes 5 baking potatoes
1 yellow squash 4 apples
5 plums 4 tomatoes
2 red peppers
Living in a small town, I know their are some that won't buy from Bountiful Baskets because it takes away from our own store. I feel that all it does is free up my budget a bit to buy things that I might not always have the money to buy. I'll probably end up at the store today to buy a few more things to make a great salad.
So maybe it isn't so expensive to eat healthy. You just have to be committed and be creative.
