The idea that healthy food is more expensive is a myth! But to feed your family healthy foods cheaply, you DO have to get up off your heiny and COOK. A crockpot can be had at Goodwill for under $10, and a plethora of easy, cheap, dinners can be cooked in one. Feeding a family healthy food cheaply involves making a lot of soups and stews and roasts. And making decent use of the leftovers. Buy ingredients in bulk and make your own baked goods–they will be both healthier and cheaper than the store garbage. Cook from scratch–mixes and premade stuff are never cost-effective, and they almost always have nasty ingredients. If you must have a crunchy salty snack, make popcorn at home. Not the microwave stuff–that’s pricey. We seldom buy junk food, and I always have sticker shock on the rare occasions that we do.
That’s good advice! Thanks for commenting.
