Most people think eating healthy food is costly, and the short answer is yes it is. Even though organic produce and meats do cost more, if you know the right places to shop AND if you cut back on meat consumption and buy in bulk the answer is not always. When you eat a healthy diet you will feel much better, isn’t that worth a few extra dollars?
Here is my collection of real places to buy real food:
My First choice is to purchase local foods. When in season local foods can be less expensive and are extremely fresh.
Local Harvest can help you to find local farms in your area.
More and more supermarkets are jumping on the health food bandwagon and selling local as well as organic foods. Here is a list of supermarkets that carry a variety of organic/sustainable products that I am aware of:
- Trader Joe’s
- Whole Foods
- Hannaford Supermarkets
- Food Lion
- Harris Teeter
