Myth: It’s more expensive to eat healthy food.

Fact: With a little planning, eating healthy foods can actually cost less than shelling out for typical fast-food fare. Are you surprised?

A study at the Mary Imogene Bassett Research Institute found that a person who follows a diet of heart healthy whole foods can reduce her grocery bill by up to $8 a week. That translates to an annual savings of $416 a year for a single person.

To help reduce your grocery bill, swap legumes for meat products; buy less-expensive produce such as apples, oranges, carrots, spinach and cabbage; and purchase healthy whole grains like oatmeal and rice in bulk.

What other ways have you found that help you save money while maintaining a healthy diet?
