Are you on a tight budget and live off fast food for the convenience and price?
Think again. Eating healthy may not be as expensive as you may think. The environmental working group and the USDA are working to drive out this all too popular myth.
The EWG and anti-hunger organization “Share Our Strength” created good food on a tight budget, a guide to the Top 100 foods that are affordable, use the least amount of pesticides and contain the most nutrients for your body.
These waist and wallet friendly foods include bananas, nectarines, watermelon, broccoli, carrots, lentils and beans, cottage cheese, raisins and turkey.
The good food guide also includes recipes and tips to help you get the most out of your new menu.
The EWG recommendations vary from growing your own spices to buying beans and rice in bulk.
Good food on a tight budget is available now for a free download on

Saying goodbye to fast food may be difficult, but your body and wallet will thank you.
