I am a vegan and I don't think healthy food is more expensive. I buy all my produce from a local organic farmer. But here in Bermuda some ingredients such as organic lentils, etc. are hard to get because everything is imported.

I find that everything that is good for you is more expensive to buy, starting with Decafe, Anything lowcal is more expensive also, If you buy fresh fruits and vegetables you can save calories also. Cook your vegetables in a steamer, it takes longer but is better for you. If you must fry eggs, use Pam instead of margarine or butter, and you'll lower your cholesterol also.Also scrambled eggs are more Nutrisious than fried, try that.In addition after a meal take a brisk walk. Dancing fast also...

Dancing fast also helps with cardio exercise, This is what I do and eventhough I walk with a cane and have degenerative arthritis in both knees it helps. You will do what it takes to maintain a healthy lifestyle, if your really serious about losing weight and keeping it off. Cut down on red meats and sweets and try to avoid fast food venues when possible. I also gave up the salt shaker when pregnant with my lastchild and neverlooked back! Good luck in your health minded endeavors, Sincerely Raemona Mae Clark Largo Florida.

I would eat healthy if it were not exspensive. I would exercise too if they had something where I live.

If utilities cost less, it would be more of an incentive to cook @ home maybe? Not sure since people are willing to pay these high gas prices for convenience sake, running the roads.

Fruit and vegatables are a much healthier choice today~`

In reading the posts, it seems I am very lucky to have easy access to fresh healthy produce at my local grocery stores in Winter, and at the farmers stands and farmers markets in West Michigan in the summer. However, the cost of fresh fruit and fish is out of bounds for a lot people with tight budgets - the cost is just unaffordable for a lot of families.

Frankly there aren't that many fresh food markets in our area and besides the food is far more expensive in our book.

the cost of organic foods should NOT be a priority......our health is worth it AND it is way cheaper than health care!

It is very difficult and expensive to find all fresh foods unless you go to a special place and there aren't that many in our area.
