The Daily Dirt

One of the Hardest Things About Eating Well is …

Money! Good food costs a lot, right? It isn’t easy eating green. You’d think it’d be cheaper without all those pesticides on them, or that they weren’t grown from GMO seeds, but turns out that growing organically takes a lot of work.

That work costs a bit more money. Not always but sometimes.

Point is, us 99 percenters have to watch our expenditures. Prioritizing our food purchses is important for our health, for the health of the planet, and the health of our local economies.

Thank goodness for the Environmental Work Group! They just published the “Good Food on a Tight Budget Shopping Guide.”

Stretching your dollars to get a month’s worth of healthy, filling food is a challenge. EWG assessed nearly 1,200 foods and hand-picked the best 100 or so that pack in nutrients at a good price, with the fewest pesticides, contaminants and artificial ingredients. Enjoy!
