“Nutritious food like vegetables, fruits, and fish can carry high price tags, but a healthy diet doesn’t have to cost a fortune, according to a study. Researchers analyzed the eating habits of almost 80,000 women in the U.S. to see how healthful and costly their diets were. While the healthi8est diets were more expensive on average than the least healthy ($4.62 per day versus $3.72), plenty of women ate well on the cheap. The authors say beans, whole grains, nuts, and soy gave the biggest health bang for the buck. Red or processed meat and high fat dairy were the least nutritious buys.” -Source: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, published online Sept. 1, 2010- For information on effective food supplements click here.
