It Pays To Be Healthy

It’s a common misconception that unhealthy foods tend to be cheaper than healthy ones. In fact, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that healthy eating isn’t as expensive as you might think: while consumers eat fewer calories per dollar when they make healthy choices, the price of healthy food by weight or portion size works out better than the price of unhealthy food. What’s more, since junk food is made up of empty calories, it often leaves consumers feeling unsatisfied, and so they buy more of it and end up spending more money. Spend wisely – make a healthy choice. It pays in more ways than one!
