I get several news feeds on my homepage (SP of course) and today one of them is an article entitled, "Eating healthy can cost more, but doesn't have to, experts say" from USA Today.
The article includes several links under "Dieting On A Dime" that I thought might be interesting.
I just wanted to point out this article for anyone that might have missed it.
I have discovered fresh fruit is having the lowest prices I have ever seen this season! I am buying fresh peaches and plums for $1 pound and this year fresh strawberries have averaged $2 pound. My fresh pineapples have been $2.88 each all season.
While some fruits have been high, starting with oranges, cherries have come down to $2 pound even though they are generally not available after July.
I am buying most of my fruits at Walmart's and Sam's Club - just to let you know where I am finding these prices.
I don't buy fresh veggies, partly because frozen is just a lot handier for me to use.
** It's nice to see we are all "fruity"
*** Thank you Carol_! That is a great warning about "Organic" coming from other lands!! I don't purchase organics, we grow them, but this is a wonderful warning for other sparkers! And I will be sure to "turn the bag over" in the future!
