To help a bit with the budgeting, organically grown food doesn't really have any nutritional value that's significant over regularly grown food. You can simply go to the farmer's market, produce store, or supermarket and get regularly grown fruits and vegetables for a fraction of the price. Really, you won't be sacrificing health.
Besides, if you're currently on a budget, fresh produce is fine because organic foods won't "boost" your weight loss or make it go any faster, and you can save your money. I know it seems odd, but there are a great deal of studies out there proving this.
Also, there's a cookbook I found called "The Healthy College Cookbook", which is basically about eating healthy on a budget. They show great meals for low prices, which should help. :)
Hello everyone, I am glad I found this team. I am extremely over weight and it has been really hard trying to purchase organically grown and other well balanced items on a budget. I am noticing that my food purchases are not lasting as long. I am looking to reduce weight to minimize so of the health issues I am currently facing (high blood pressure, cholestoral (very high), pre-diabetes. I need all the motivation and assistance I can get and will do all I can to keep others motivated as well.
