Does Eating Healthy Have To Be More Expensive?

Sometimes it’s quicker – and seemingly cheaper – to eat fast foods, or processed meals. But with smart shopping and meal planning, you can eat delicious, healthy meals that are also affordable. Learn the steps you can take to pack your pantry full of nutrition while stretching your dollar with this free online seminar, Eating Healthy on a Shoestring Budget.

 
Organic eating, for example, can be more expensive, but do you have to eat everything organic? Learn about the foods where you should choose the organic options versus the non-organic options you can keep in your cart — and how to find the best price for both.


 
How knowledgeable are you when it comes to food labels? This is one of the first steps when it comes to shopping smart. The food industry often makes claims on its labels that seem to indicate a product is healthy, when it may not be at all. For example, a product that “contains fruit juice” may, in fact, consist mainly of corn syrup or sugar. This online seminar will help you sift through all these claims.

 
If a label has a long list of ingredients, it’s probably heavily processed and unhealthy. Processed foods require multiple ingredients to make, and also to extend their shelf life. Not all processed food is unhealthy, though. The American Dietetic Association has a spectrum where food falls from minimally processed—like bagged spinach—to heavily processed—like frozen chicken nuggets.
