Eating healthy can sometimes be a challenge in today's economy. I know that many times it is tempting to buy a dollar burger from a fast food joint than to go to the grocery store and spend more buying each natural organic ingredient to make a healthy meal. However, here are some simple tips on how to eat healthy meals on a budget.
1. Buy produce that is inseason.I know that this may sound too simple to be effective, but it really is.

They are then able to pass on those savings to their customers. Sometimes they even have great sales.
